The vision for 1979 Mission Street would provide:
285 new rental apartments and 46 affordable homes, ranging from studios to 4-bedrooms, which do not exist on the site today;
The 46 affordable homes would be located in a building which would be dedicated to the City of San Francisco. These 46 affordable homes would be targeted towards participants of the SRO Family and Moving On voucher programs.
The income generated from the 46 affordable homes would provide rent subsidies to an additional 159 Mission District households;
32,500 gross square feet (GSF) of flexible new retail space;
164 secure bike parking spaces for both residents and retail tenants;
at least 4 dedicated car share spaces;
3 off-street truck loading spaces and 1 accessible van space;
22 independently accessible parking spaces for retail use and 137 parking spaces for residents;
an increase in plaza size by nearly 40% which will enable a more vibrant, dynamic, and robust plaza where people gathering will enhance the community aspect of the space and through the neighborhood appeal help dissuade crime;
an increase in community awareness along Mission, 16th, and Capp Streets as well as around the BART plaza with new engaging retail spaces, active street frontages, as well as the illumination of the general area to provide a beacon of good in our neighborhood;
and a visual and recognizable community focal point at a major pedestrian, transportation, and automobile intersection that also integrates contextually with the surrounding neighborhood.
1979 Mission Street will not displace residential homes because no housing exists on the site today.
