Helping to alleviate a shortage of affordable housing for educators, the San Francisco Unified School District plans to utilize an existing site in the Sunset District of San Francisco to construct a 100% affordable multifamily housing project. BAR is designing the new 4- and 5-story building, which will include 134 affordable dwelling units in a mixture of studios, 1-, 2- and 3-bedrooms.
Residential amenities include a courtyard, private outdoor areas, fitness room, work space/lounge and learning center/computer lab. The project will also include 48 vehicle parking spaces, two car-share spaces, 111 Class I bicycle parking spaces, and nine Class II bicycle parking spaces.
Located on the current site is a “playland” that has been utilized by the local community for events and as a neighborhood playground. Our site plan provides for the replacement of this public space with a 1,750 sf community room that will be open for neighborhood use, as well as 7,310 sf publicly accessible open space.
