Affordable Housing Requirements of the Plan


At a minimum, 35% of all new units built in the Project Area must be affordable: At a minimum, 25% will be affordable to households earning 60% of AMI and another 10% will be affordable to households earning 120% of AMI We know how many units will be built in Zone One here we can make sure that at least 35% are affordable. We do not know how may units will be built in Zone Two; so far only one residential project is in the planning stage (41 Tehama St.). If units are built in Zone Two, the Redevelopment Agency will have to build affordable units.

TRANSBAY REDEVELOPMENT PROJECT AREA

Zone One Plan


Approximately 3,450 units, of which approximately 1,200 will be affordable.
Approximately 400 units will be inclusionary units (built within market-rate projects). Approximately 800 units will be stand-alone (or built within 100% affordable projects). Goal is to achieve the 35% affordable housing level while maximizing the land value.

Zone One Block Development


Mixed building types and designs. One tower per block.

Active ground floor.


Shared open space. Shared parking structure. Different building types accommodate different types of affordable housing.

Tower Units
High construction costs mean that towers do not work well for standalone, 100% affordable housing projects. Instead, towers will have inclusionary affordable housing of at least 15% of the total units. Based on current market conditions, towers will most likely be developed as condominiums.

TRANSBAY REDEVELOPMENT PROJECT AREA

Mid-Rise, Podium and Townhouse Units


Lower construction costs mean that mid-rise, podium and townhouse projects can be standalone, 100% affordable housing projects.
Can be rental units or condominiums, but most will be rental units in order to balance the fact that most of the tower units will be condominiums.

Market-Rate and Affordable Housing Summary


In order to achieve the 35% affordable housing level and still maximize the value of the land: Most of the towers will be market-rate condominium developments with 15% inclusionary affordable housing. Based on Agency policy, these inclusionary units will be priced around 80-100 percent of AMI, but will not exceed 120 percent of AMI. Most of the mid-rise, podium and townhouse units will be stand-alone, 100% affordable housing projects. Most will be rental units. Based on Agency policy, these units will be priced at 50% of AMI or less. The condominiums will be priced at 80-100 percent of AMI, like the tower units.

Why Supportive Housing?

Throughout the nation and here in San Francisco, the model of housing with onsite supportive services has proven to be most effective in housing persons who have been homeless.It is clearly more humane and cost effective to provide someone a decent supportive housing unit rather than allow them to remain on the street
The San Francisco Plan to Abolish Chronic Homelessness

TRANSBAY REDEVELOPMENT PROJECT AREA

Why Supportive Housing Works

Supportive Housing works because of the carefully selected supportive services delivered to residents on site, linkages to physical and behavioral health services in the community, and the confidence that comes from no longer being threatened and isolated from living on the streets.
