KIND AFFORDABLE HOUSING PROPOSAL FOR

DEVELOPMENT AT 1979 MISSION

LIVE. WORK. SHOP. CONNECT.

THE MISSION DISTRICT

Located at one of San Francisco’s most culturally and transit-rich intersections, Mission and 16th Street, 1979 Mission is a true transit-oriented development at only steps away from BART and Muni.

OUTREACH

Since summer 2013, we have met with Marshall Elementary School, neighbors, retail tenants, and other community members, holding over 500 meetings of all sizes—from large workshops to small group briefings. We are committed to continuing discussion to through each project phase and ensuring all voices can be heard.


HOUSING

In total, 1979 Mission project will offer 331 new apartments, including 285 apartments and 46 BMR homes, providing much-needed housing that is not currently available onsite today.

RETAIL

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

A Community Focal Point


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

A BART Plaza That Engages the Community


By increasing the BART plaza by 40%, residents and visitors alike can engage with the neighborhood in exciting ways such as a new mercado for local businesses to service the community and a public platform for local artists to feature their work.

Public Realm Improvements


The 1979 Mission project is more than just a development project—it is an investment in the Mission and the Mission community. Through committed engagement with our neighbors and community members, we can work together to create a welcome, inclusive, and engaging 16th and Mission for all.

A Safe Route on Capp


Paying tribute to and further realizing Capp Street's residential ambience, the 1979 Mission project will provide wider sidewalks, a parking lot for safer pedestrian route, and additional trees and planters to enliven and replace blank walls.
