1979 MISSION UNVEILS NEW APPROACH TO BUILD HOUSING FOR ALL INCOME LEVELS IN THE MISSION DISTRICT
LIVE. WORK. SHOP. CONNECT.
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.
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.
