AN UGLY PARKING LOT IN SAN DIEGO IS ABOUT TO BE REBORN AS AFFORDABLE HOUSING TO PRESERVE AND REVITALIZE THE LITTLE ITALY NEIGHBORHOOD

The glass façade will showcase the spectacular views from residences and emphasize the contemporary feel of the development. An abstract sculptural frieze, called Sogno D’Argento by family member and world-renowned artist, John Asaro, will pay homage to Little Italy’s past as a working-class Italian and Portuguese neighborhood that once was the center of the west coast tuna fishing industry. It will be a prominent part of the building design and complement the existing neighborhood art.

$100M TENDERLOIN MICRO-UNIT PROJECT BREAKS GROUND THIS MONTH

 

Affordable housing developer Tenderloin Neighborhood Development Corp. owns a property adjacent to 145 Leavenworth St. and had been advising Forge on their project for the last few years, TNDC Planning and Policy Manager Alexandra Goldman said.

 

"It's sort of a new model," Goldman said. "Having private resources funding a project with an income cap, but that's a good thing."

WHY IS IT SO DIFFICULT TO BUILD AFFORDABLE HOUSING IN THE BAY AREA?
 

With 100,000 jobs created in the last six years within San Francisco, a need for housing at multiple income levels has become pressing. More than 7,000 affordable housing units began construction during this time, but the need for more housing continues.

EXCLUSIVE: TWO TENDERLOIN HOUSING PROJECTS FOR S.F.'S "MISSING MIDDLE' TO BREAK GROUND

There has been virtually no new housing built for "middle-income" San Franciscans, because market-rate projects are too expensive due to construction and land costs. Subsidized affordable units are mostly restricted to renters making less than the average area median income. Forge Land Co. is trying to meet that need with a mix of new technology and small units.

NEW HOUSING PLANNED FOR LONG-VACANT TENDERLOIN LOTS

"We're not displacing any of the existing housing or community," Forge Land Company CEO Richard Hannum says, noting that the two lots never got built on after the 1906 earthquake. "We're simply augmenting the community. The rent rates will by definition be consistent with the community, so this is all net add housing stock."
