Developer John Stewart Company is proceeding with design, financing and City approvals of two affordable housing buildings on the block bounded by Broadway, Front, Vallejo and Davis Streets, on two parcels now used as parking lots, one owned by the Port and the other by the SF Department of Public Works.
The larger building at 88 Broadway will have 130 units of family housing, and will occupy the entire western half of the block. The smaller building at 735 Davis will have 54 senior housing units, will occupy part of the eastern half of the block, and will be flanked by existing buildings. A north/south walkway through the entire block will separate the two new buildings, and an east/west walkway through the entire block will pass through the 88 Broadway building, and will separate 735 Davis from the existing building to its south. One or possibly two restaurants or cafes are proposed at street level. The buildings will fit within existing 65-foot and 40-foot height limits.
The two buildings will be managed by Bridge Housing. Rental units will be available to a mix of low income, very low income, and moderate or middle income tenants. Construction is expected to begin in 2019, and to take 19 months for 88 Broadway, and 16 months for 735 Davis.
We will update you on the progress when construction begins!
