In Development

A 119 unit affordable project (including a manager’s unit) at Third Street between Mission Rock and “Lot A”. 62 units will house formerly homeless veterans and 57 units will house low income families. The project surrounds a generous internal courtyard and features community spaces and services appropriate for the different populations. It is being developed in partnership with Swords to Plowshares.
A 127 unit family affordable project on Folsom between 16th and 17th Streets. Approximately 75% of the units will house low income families, with the remainder targeted to newly emancipated transitional age youth. The project features an internal courtyard and provides community spaces and services, including childcare and offices for longstanding Mission organizations Jamestown Community Center and PODER. It is being developed in partnership with Mission Economic Development Agency.
A 94 unit senior affordable project on Shotwell between 26th and Cesar Chavez Streets. 20% of the units will be set aside for formerly homeless seniors. A rich array of services and communal spaces is provided on the ground floor, second floor, and roof. It is being developed in partnership with Mission Economic Development Agency.
Chinatown CDC is beginning initial feasibility and design work for a new project on Treasure Island, in partnership with Swords to Plowshares, a veterans’ rights and service organization. This will be the third partnership between Chinatown CDC and Swords to Plowshares, following the success of Veterans Commons, which opened in 2012, and 1150 Third Street, which is currently in the design phase. Swords’ and Chinatown CDC’s new endeavor will be called Maceo May Apartments after Swords’ longtime housing director, who passed away in 2014.

Maceo May Apartments will be the first building built as part of the Treasure Island redevelopment plan, which will eventually create a mixed-income community of thousands of new housing units on the site of the former military base. Maceo May will consist of approximately 100 units of housing for veterans, some of whom will be relocating from Swords’ existing transitional housing on Treasure Island, which is scheduled to be demolished as part of the redevelopment plan. The building will also include a suite of services space designed to serve veterans, a meal program, and common open space.

The initial project schedule estimates the start of construction in early 2019, with construction completion and lease-up starting in early 2021.
