affordable homes for essential workers

Balboa Reservoir

One of the biggest opportunities for affordable homebuilding in recent years is coming to fruition in San Francisco. The Balboa Reservoir project, located on the site of a CCSF overflow parking lot, will include 550 affordable family units – which will become home to thousands of our neighbors. The development is located only steps from a wide range of public transit options, and will feature an array of amenities for the wider community such as a new childcare center and a public park.

Many of San Francisco’s leading developers have are working together to make this project a reality. Habitat for Humanity is part of the team and will be building affordable homes for homeownership. More details are available here.

UPDATE: The San Francisco Planning Commission unanimously approved this project on May 28.

This was a crucial meeting where the Commission decided to approve general plan and planning code amendments, as well as a host of other decisions that, taken together, were critical to the project moving forward. Thank you to everyone who signed our petition.

The project now heads to the San Francisco Board of Supervisors for final approval. Watch this page, or follow us on twitter @HabitatGSF, to stay up to date on the scheduling of this meeting and learn how you can continue to support it.
