SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. — Mission: accomplished.
More than three years after an executive directive from San Francisco Mayor London Breed, Mission Housing completed the conversion of three unoccupied garages into affordable housing Accessory Dwelling Units (ADUs) for San Francisco seniors.
The transformation is part of the rehabilitation of 3434 18th Street — a three-story, eight-unit building built almost a century ago. The multi-million project was supported by Mayor Breed’s Executive Directive to accelerate the approvals of Accessory Dwelling Units in 2019. The transformation was completed in eight months. Each unit includes new amenities for the tenants as well as a full conversion to an all-electric footprint.
“Now, more than ever, it is imperative that San Francisco's affordable housing development community utilizes its properties to their fullest and best potential to provide as many affordable housing units as possible,” said Misson Housing Executive Director, Sam Moss. “By converting these garages to three new low-income units with 100 percent of its own funds, Mission Housing is once again leading the industry by example.”
Mission Housing had the help of its partners Blecher Building + Urban Design and Nibbi Brothers General Contractors to ensure all required processes were followed.
