The building offers 157 homes—including 30 homes reserved for formerly unhoused families—supported by extensive services and community spaces.
A central courtyard links a range of shared amenities to foster resident connection and social gatherings: a community room and kitchen, media lab, laundry lounge, and neighborhood-serving child-care center. A new mid-block paseo lined with low-cost artist studios creates access to the site and continues the network of plazas and alleyways that characterize the Mission.
The ground floor includes street-side space for a local café, a non-profit bicycle shop, and Youth Arts Exchange, which will activate the paseo with workshops in art and cultural expression.
The building is topped by an extensive roof deck providing sweeping city views and space for gardening, play, and respite.
According to Sam Moss, Executive Director of Mission Housing Development Corporation—who developed the project in partnership with BRIDGE Housing: “Community-based planning and design are guiding principles of this collaborative effort. This is a uniquely conceived project in that it addresses displacement of Mission District families, neighborhood artists, and people who are experiencing homelessness.”
