The anticipated increase in population, residential density, retail establishments, and related employment opportunities associated with 1979 Mission are consistent with the Eastern Neighborhoods Mission Area Plan and community input from the hundreds of meetings held over nearly 10 years to develop and approve the Eastern Neighborhoods Plan.

While 1979 Mission will require the property to be vacant during construction, existing retail tenants will be provided with relocation payment assistance. Once complete, 1979 Mission will provide opportunities for smaller, local businesses to reoccupy the new retail spaces.

The project will utilize 100% union labor and provide employment opportunities for local residents during construction. When construction is complete long-term employment opportunities in building operations and within the commercial businesses.
