North view with entry.

Across the mews, a view into the courtyard of the adjacent Third and Carroll Housing.

The Dr. George Davis Senior Building will feature 121 one- and two-bedroom affordable rental apartments for seniors. The building and its neighborhood-serving senior community center round out a quartet of buildings creating a diverse urban community along San Francisco's rapidly developing Third Street Corridor. Integrating senior housing into a mixed-use micro-neighborhood adds a multi-generational aspect and prevents seniors from living in isolation.

The five-story apartment building will house common areas and property management offices as well as sitting, dining, and exercise rooms. Above, informal lounges and laundry areas will dot the residential floors.

The at-grade senior center will provide senior services, two conference rooms, a kitchen, lounges, and staff offices.


The Dr. George Davis Senior Building (Lot 42) as it relates to the upcoming adjacent market-rate housing at Third and Carroll (Lot 41).

This senior housing is being designed in tandem with Third and Carroll Housing, adjacent market-rate condominiums that round out a new community on the Third Street corridor.

The landscape plan is designed in conjunction with the adjacent Third and Carroll market-rate housing, taking a comprehensive approach to the site. The plan also includes significant landscape upgrades to Carroll Avenue.

The Dr. George Davis Senior Center's open space includes a community garden, a landscaped pedestrian mews, an entry court, private balconies, and a dedicated second-level courtyard.

Secure parking is available, although not emphasized. The building is easily served by the local light-rail line, which connects Third Street with downtown San Francisco.
