San Francisco affordable housing builders team up to construct Crocker Amazon Senior Apartments
Crocker Amazon Senior Apartments is an affordable rental housing community with a total of thirty-six Section 8 assisted living units. These affordable apartments provide an independent living environment for seniors. Also known as CASA, the complex was co-developed with Bernal Heights Housing Corporation. Construction on Crocker Amazon Senior Apartments was completed in 2005, after an intensive community process. The site is now a jewel of the Crocker Amazon neighborhood.
The three-story, Spanish-style building was constructed on the site formerly occupied by a Mel’s Diner (purportedly, the restaurant was visited by Katharine Hepburn and Spencer Tracy in the 1967 film “Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner?”)
Designed by SGPA Architecture & Planning, the design incorporates features of adjacent homes “honoring” the surrounding residents. A trapezoidal site on a major transit corridor in San Francisco, the complex features a community room with attached kitchen, an exercise room and courtyard garden.
Primary development funds were provided by US Department of Housing and Urban Development, Section 202 – Supportive Housing for the Elderly Program, the San Francisco Mayor’s Office of Housing and Federal Home Loan Bank, San Francisco – Affordable Housing Program (AHP)
