A NEW ICON
The vision of 1979 Mission Street is to build quality, needed rental housing which does not exist on the site today and provide retail spaces for local businesses in one of San Francisco's most iconic, culturally diverse, and transit rich neighborhoods.
The design of 1979 Mission Street creates a recognizable community focal point. It will be an enhanced meeting place, social and transportation hub for the community and neighborhood, and strengthen Mission Street as a vital neighborhood retail corridor.
No housing exists on site today, so no residents will be displaced. The project proposes 285 new 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 toward participants of the SRO Family and Moving On voucher programs. Income generated from the 46 affordable homes would provide rental subsidies for an additional 159 Mission District Households. The retail spaces will be welcoming and open to spark pedestrian interest and interaction while providing a safe, engaging BART plaza. The community will also benefit from the sidewalk and street improvements along Mission, 16th, and Capp Streets which are proposed as part of the project.
We value community input and participation. It is a priority to work with our neighbors and the community as we continue on building and public realm enhancement designs. By working together, 1979 Mission Street can provide the most benefits to the community.
Take a look around and let us know if you have any feedback.
No residential homes exist at this transit rich location today, making 1979 Mission the perfect opportunity to provide much needed rental housing.
