665 Clay

Address: 665 Clay St
Phone: 415-981-1378

The struggle to save 665 Clay became a defining struggle for affordable housing in the dot.com era. After receiving Ellis Act eviction letters, tenants working with Chinatown CDC organizers staged a series of protests from the front door of City Hall to the alleyways of Chinatown. This public pressure forced the city to confront the impact of speculator Ellis Act evictions and gentrification. Eventually, the City funded Chinatown CDC’s effort to purchase the building and preserve it as affordable housing for the families at 665 Clay Street.  Chinatown CDC later seismically upgraded the building, provided heat for the first time to residents, improved kitchens and unit finishes, and provided new community bathrooms. Chinatown CDC’s Organizing offices are on the ground floor, along with another tenant in a large commercial space.
