Swinerton, Mission Housing, BRIDGE Housing Development Corporation, and the CityBuild Academy will host a groundbreaking for the 1950 Mission Street affordable housing project.
San Francisco Mayor London Breed was on hand to give a speech about the importance of this project, speaking about the importance of affordable housing for local families.
The 1950 Mission Street Housing Project is a 157-unit, below-market-rate mixed-use residential project located in the heart of the Mission District of San Francisco. 1950 Mission will provide rental housing to low- to moderate-income families, including formerly homeless families.
1950 Mission is the first affordable housing development in the Mission in 10 years. The 163,842-square-foot project consists of two buildings, nine and five floors, connected by an internal courtyard and an open-air bridge at levels two through five, across the street from the 16th Street/Mission BART Station. The project will also provide job opportunities for local workers and local business, including minority-owned, women-owned, and small businesses.
Among the amenities and on-site services planned at 1950 Mission are a childcare and youth programming center, community/retail space, six artist studios, non-profit service provider space, bike workshop, large courtyard, and rooftop garden. Completion is expected in January 2021.
Upon completion, on-site supportive services will be provided to residents by Mission Housing Development Corporation and Lutheran Social Services, and Mission Neighborhood Centers will operate a new Head Start & Early Head Start youth space.
