One beat, one heart: Mission Housing and Related CA hosts grand opening for Kapuso at the Upper Yard

From the Mayor's Housing of Housing and Community Development

Today, Mayor London N. Breed, Senator Scott Weiner, and representatives from the California Department of Housing and Community Development (HCD) and the California Business, Consumer Services and Housing Agency (BCSH) joined local community leaders to celebrate the grand opening of Kapuso at the Upper Yard, a new 100% affordable housing development in the Outer Mission.Located at 2340 San Jose Avenue on a city-owned lot adjacent to the Balboa Park Area Rapid Transit Station (BART), Kapuso at the Upper Yard is an affordable, mixed-use, transit-oriented development with 131 apartments for low- to moderate-income families.

“We feel Kapuso at the Upper Yard sets a new standard for affordable housing in San Francisco. It is a shining example of what community development should be — from its inception as an ideal conceived by community to the planning to its design to its construction,” said Sam Moss, Executive Direction at Mission Housing Development Corporation. “From Day 1, the goal was for Kapuso to represent the heartbeat of this diverse community and today is vindication of what happens when we all come together to accomplish the greatest of all goods — build quality affordable housing.”

“Kapuso at the Upper Yard is a great example of affordable housing best practices. It is transit-oriented, activates a formerly under-utilized publicly owned site, and leverages partnerships between the city, state, and transit agencies to create well-located, new affordable housing,” said Ann Silverberg, Chief Executive Officer at Related California, Northern California Affordable and Northwest Divisions. “As one of the first projects to use SB 35, Kapuso at the Upper Yard is a testament to the power and impact of the state’s new entitlement streamlining tools. Related California is grateful to the Mayor, Board of Supervisors, Senator Wiener, BART, State of California, and the community for their partnership to make this ambitious development a reality.”
