New building permits have been approved by the Planning Department for the construction of an eight-story affordable infill at 730 Stanyan Street in Haight-Ashbury, San Francisco. The project is expected to cost just over a million dollars per unit, costing nearly $166 million. Along with the approval, the Board of Supervisors has passed a resolution supporting potential state funding for the project, and new design plans have been revealed from OMA.

San Francisco takes longer than any other city in California to approve new housing. For this reason, the State of California’s Department of Housing and Community Development has launched its first-ever investigation with the Housing Accountability Unit. According to the HCD, the team will be “identifying and removing barriers to approval and construction of new housing there.”
New renderings have been revealed for a 41-story proposal at One Oak in San Francisco’s Civic Center neighborhood. The imagery and new details come after an application this summer was filed to request an entitlement revision and increase the dwelling unit count from 319 to 453 units. Now, planning documents suggest the project could create 465 dwelling units. Build Inc. is responsible for the application.
The San Francisco Board of Supervisors is scheduled to consider an appeal of 469 Stevenson Street, a proposed 27-story mixed-use addition to SoMa. Filed by the Yerba Buena Neighborhood Consortium, the appeal claims the project’s environmental review was inadequate and unsafe. Both the project developer and city staff rebuke each claim as inaccurate and an attempt to stall the high-rise residential addition to the neighborhood.
The Board of Supervisors has filed permits to amend the zoning map and create an affordable housing special use district at 2500-2530 18th Street, by the eastern edge of the Mission District in San Francisco. The permits will allow for new uses of the properties, including affordable housing. A local family resource center institution, Homeless Prenatal Program, is the property owner.
