In Development

Swords to Plowshares and Chinatown Community Development Center are partnering to develop this new housing project located at 1150 3rd Street in the Mission Bay neighborhood. The new site slated to open in November 2019 will house 62 veterans and 56 low-income families with on-site supportive services. This project is the first housing site in the city that will serve a dual purpose of housing both veterans and low-income families.
Through a partnership between Mission Economic Development Agency (MEDA) and Chinatown Community Development Center (Chinatown CDC), Casa Adelante - 2060 Folsom will provide 127 affordable rental apartments with 29 units for transitional-age youth. The development’s design seamlessly blends into In Chan Kaajal Park.

Three longtime Mission-based nonprofits will be based at Casa Adelante - 2060 Folsom: PODER, Good Samaritan Family Resource Center and Mission Graduates. Larkin Street Youth Services and Chinatown Community Development Center will also provide on-site services.
Through a partnership between Mission Economic Development Agency (MEDA) and Chinatown Community Development Center (Chinatown CDC), Casa Adelante-1296 Shotwell, located in the Mission District will provide 94 units of affordable housing, with on-site supportive services by mid-2020. There will be 74 apartments for seniors living on no more than 50 percent of San Francisco Area Median Income, with 19 apartments set aside for seniors experiencing homelessness.

There will also be a manager’s unit. The nine-story building will come complete with staff offices, four rooftop terraces, landscaped garden courtyards, a spacious community room with kitchen, 22 bicycle storage spaces, solar hot-water system, communal laundry room, and enhanced security systems.
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 105 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.
In partnership with Tenderloin Neighborhood Development Corporation, we won the rights to 730 Stanyan, which will provide new affordable housing in the Haight-Asbury neighborhood.
