Balboa Reservoir – A proposed housing development

Every member of our team has a longstanding reputation for in-depth and successful community-oriented development. The first step to any successful project is a deep understanding of the project context – the people, places, institutions, and patterns that shape any neighborhood’s daily life.

• AvalonBay Communities, BRIDGE Housing Corporation, Habitat for Humanity of Greater San Francisco, and Pacific Union Development Company won the competitive process that began in March, 2017, when teams first submitted their qualifications.

• The Balboa Reservoir Development is part of the “Public Land for Housing program,” a collaboration among San Francisco officials to address the City’s housing needs by maximizing the use of City-owned land.

The San Francisco Office of Economic and Workforce Development (OEWD) and the Planning Department coordinated the RFP process on behalf of the San Francisco Public Utilities Commission.

• Two of the developers chosen have already teamed-up on other San Francisco affordable housing — La Fenix at 1950 and Avanza 490

Several entities on the team have built, or are building, in the Balboa Park area. Mission Housing and partner Related California are making progress on constructing new, 100 percent affordable homes across from the Balboa Park BART station.

• “Balboa Reservoir will be one of the most vibrant neighborhoods in San Francisco. Our plan encourages a diversity of households and families with a wide range of incomes. We’re proud to see our efforts at bringing new affordable housing to San Francisco pay off,” said Moss. “In our immediate future, Mission Housing will provide quality, 100 percent affordable housing for thousands more people. Our commitment to Balboa Park is for the long term.” -Sam Moss, Executive Director, Mission Housing
