International Hotel Senior Housing

Address: 848 Kearny
Phone: 415-773-2200

International Hotel Senior Housing is the culmination of the 36 year struggle over the International Hotel, an old SRO building that drew national attention in August 1977 when its elderly Filipino and Chinese residents were evicted by San Francisco sheriffs in a brutal raid. Community activists battled for years to have affordable housing replace the torn-down hotel, instead of the office high-rise planned by developers. After over 20 years as a vacant lot, the site was purchased by the Archdiocese of San Francisco. The Archdiocese decided to develop an underground garage, and partnered with International Hotel Senior Housing, Inc. and Chinatown CDC to develop senior housing above. Another partner, St. Mary’s Chinese Catholic School, is building a school facility on the remainder of the site. The International Hotel now stands at fifteen stories of senior affordable housing development with many amenities for residents including a daily nutrition/activities program and a ground floor Cultural Center operated by the Manilatown Heritage Foundation. The building features design elements and art depicting the history and legacy of the International Hotel struggle.
