Proposed Affordable Family Housing
The Tenderloin Neighborhood Development Corporation (TNDC) is working with the Mayor’s Office of Housing and Community Development (MOHCD) and Supervisor Mar to develop 100-percent affordable multi-family housing, targeted for San Francisco’s essential workers. In the past decade, the Sunset District has lost a disproportionately high number of affordable rental homes with too few new units being built, even though the district is home to many working families.
Currently the development is proposed as an up to seven-story building (per zoning) that includes:
Up to 100 studios, 1-, 2-, and 3-bedroom apartments at a range of affordable rents
50% of residential units will be 2- and 3-bedroom apartments
2,250 SF of ground floor community-focused space to support the neighborhood
At least 11 on-site car parking spaces, as well as bicycle parking
Green spaces, including a rear courtyard
Who would live here?
The proposed development is intended to provide family-friendly housing for San Francisco’s essential workers: households that earn between $27,000 and $102,000 and have jobs in fields like healthcare, childcare, education, non-profit services, construction, and retail. The Sunset has the third highest number of children in San Francisco’s eleven districts, and 2550 Irving’s proximity to high performing schools makes it a great location for family affordable housing.
Consistent with MOHCD policy and TNDC’s mission, many of the apartments will be reserved for households who live in the Sunset or have been displaced from housing in San Francisco, expanding access and opportunities for families and children.
I live near the proposed project. How can I be involved in the process?
We are very early in the process, in the phase of gathering community input from Sunset residents before finalizing the design. Planning, designing and constructing a new development takes time. Over the next several months, beginning with a community meeting in January, we will be meeting with Sunset residents and, in coordination with Supervisor Mar, co-hosting a series of community meetings.
For more information on the dates and virtual locations of meetings, please send an email to 2550Irvinginfo@gmail.com, or call (415) 735-5514. We look forward to working with you to expand affordable housing opportunities for families in the Sunset!
At TNDC, we believe that everyone deserves to thrive. Since 1981 we've supported tenants and community members in building transformative communities through Homes, Health, and Voice. Over the course of 40 years we’ve innovated supportive housing practices with onsite social workers and wellness programming that meet unique community needs while respecting cultural difference. Today, over 5,800 people are housed across our 43 buildings and in a few years we will reach over 10,000 people.
Rooted in the Tenderloin with branches across seven San Francisco neighborhoods, including the Richmond, the Haight, the Mission, and Western Addition, TNDC strives to work alongside communities and meet people where they're at. We believe that only together we can build a future with economic and racial equity.
