1979 MISSION UNVEILS NEW APPROACH TO BUILD HOUSING FOR ALL INCOME LEVELS IN THE MISSION DISTRICT

LIVE. WORK. SHOP. CONNECT.

THE MISSION DISTRICT

Located at one of San Francisco’s most culturally and transit rich intersections at Mission and 16th Streets, 1979 Mission is served by BART and Muni, making it a true transit oriented development.

OUTREACH

Since late summer 2013, we have met with Marshall Elementary School, neighbors, retail tenants, and other stakeholders on multiple occasions holding over 100 meetings from large workshops to small group briefings and will continue to through each project phase.

 

HOUSING

The 1979 Mission Street project proposes 290 new rental apartments and 41 affordable for-sale workforce homes, ranging from studios to 4-bedrooms -- which do not exist on the site today. Proceeds from the 41 affordable for-sale workforce homes would provide for 49 additional affordable rental units off site.

RETAIL

Approximately 32,000 GSF of retail with storefronts on Mission St., 16th St., and the 16th St. Mission BART plaza.

A Community Focal Point


1979 Mission Street will be a visual and community focal point for the neighborhood and highlight the important transit hub served by BART and Muni at 16th and Mission Streets.

Enhancing the BART plaza for the Community


Residential apartments above the vibrant and engaging ground floor retail uses will enhance the 16th Street Mission BART plaza as a social hub.

Public Realm Improvements


Engage with neighbors to enhance 16th and Mission to make it accessible to everyone.

A Safe Route on Capp


Respecting Capp Street's residential feel the project will provide wider sidewalks, additional trees, and planters to replace blank walls and a parking lot for a safer pedestrian route.
