FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: December 11, 2023
San Francisco, CA – The Hunters Point Shipyard Citizens Advisory Committee, San Francisco Housing Development Corporation (SFHDC), and the Office of Community Investment and Infrastructure (OCII) are proud to showcase two
pivotal affordable housing developments in the Hunters Point Shipyard neighborhood.
These projects represent a significant milestone in San Francisco’s affordable housing landscape, embodying a commitment to enriching the community by providing access to safe, desirable, and affordable homes for San Franciscans.
The first project, co-developed by Mercy Housing California and SFHDC, is located on a portion of Block 56 and features 72 apartments affordable to households earning 35%-50% of the Area Median Income (AMI).
These developments are a reflection of our joint commitment to
providing affordable housing solutions in San Francisco, and
fostering a more inclusive and sustainable city.
“The people who are essential to making San Francisco function – from health aides and social workers to MUNI drivers and childcare providers – need and deserve access to quality, stable affordable housing,” said Doug Shoemaker, President of Mercy Housing California, co-developer of 11 Innes Court. “We’re proud to partner with San Francisco Housing Development Corporation and the San Francisco Office of Community Investment and Infrastructure to bring these 72 service-enriched homes to the Hunters Point Shipyard neighborhood.”
“San Francisco’s housing crisis continues to outpace the rest of the country, and we look forward to working with our community partners to bring this much-needed development to the Bay Area, while providing residents with amenities and programming to help them thrive,” said Sabrina Barker, Director of Development, Jonathan Rose Companies.
“We have been waiting for this day for over 50 years,” said Oscar James, Board Member of Bayview Senior Services, one of the local nonprofit housing partners. “As a native resident born on Navy Road it is a privilege to have the opportunity for people from our community to rent a new space back in their own neighborhood.”
“OCII is thrilled construction is underway on Blocks 52/54 and Block 56 in the Hunters Point Shipyard neighborhood,” said Thor Kaslofsky, OCII Executive Director. “These developments are the first OCII-sponsored affordable housing projects to be developed in Hunters Point Shipyard. These projects will bring the critical affordable housing and jobs that our Commission and Mayor London Breed have committed to deliver for the community and the City. Upon completion, they will provide 182 affordable homes. The developments are a testament to our City’s commitment to investing in our vulnerable citizens and an integral part of meeting Mayor Breed’s affordable housing goals.”
David Sobel, CEO of SFHDC added, “We and our partners are extremely proud and honored to be adding this urgently needed and beautifully designed affordable housing to the Shipyard and Bayview Hunters Point communities. We appreciate the many years of hard work of the Citizens Advisory Committee, OCII and the various City departments that paved the way for the realization of these important community assets.”
