Low-Income Families & Formerly Homeless Families
Number of Units
1950 Mission will be a mixed-use housing complex for low to moderate income families, including formerly homeless families. Mission Housing and BRIDGE Housing along with David Baker Architects were selected by the Mayor’s Office of Housing & Community Development to develop the undertaking. The general contractor is Swinerton Builders.
On-site supportive services will be provided to residents by Mission Housing Development Corporation and Lutheran Social Services. Another partner, Mission Neighborhood Centers, will operate a new Head Start & Early Head Start youth space.
Amenities on the drawing board include: a rooftop garden for events, a courtyard, a community room, a kitchen, and a bike workshop that will focus on training youth from the property and the surrounding communities on bike maintenance. Neighborhood-service retail space will be available for local nonprofits and entrepreneurs. Affordable gallery and work spaces will cater to the Mission District artist community.
The 1950 Mission Street site is a 36,398 square foot parcel situated in the heart of the dynamic Mission district between 15th and 16th Streets and a short walk from the 16th Mission BART station. Formerly Phoenix Continuation High School, the site was abandoned and listed as surplus property by San Francisco Unified School District in 2002. The City of San Francisco purchased the property from SFUSD in 2015.
Now, the Mayor’s Office of Housing and Community Development operates an experimental ‘navigation center’ on the site. Homeless people reside there on a short-term basis and access services that help them transition to permanent housing.
