The 121 one- and two-bedroom affordable rental apartments are available to low-income seniors, including a placement program for seniors leaving incarceration. Many of the residents are long-time or one-time residents of the Bayview Hunters Point neighborhood, and are returning to community life in this building. The building received more than 4,000 applications for its 121 homes, highlighting the need for affordable senior housing in the area.
The ground level of the eastern residential wing features a private common room, event kitchen, and fitness center, as well as a dedicated staff providing social services. Informal lounges and laundry rooms are sited on each floor, and there are shared decks overlooking the courtyard at the second and fourth levels.
The ground-level of the west wing of the building is dedicated to a 15,000-sf neighborhood-serving senior center run by Bayview Senior Services. The residential and community wings share a sunny, sheltered central courtyard.
In addition to the services and structured programs—ranging from exercise classes to game nights to cooking demonstrations and a community garden—the Dr. George W. Davis Senior Center also serves as central meeting place where area seniors can relax, catch up with their neighbors, play pool and dominos, and drink coffee.
The new homes and senior community center round out a quartet of buildings creating a diverse urban community along San Francisco’s 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.
