Bringing affordable homeownership to Diamond Heights.
Groundbreaking in Diamond Heights
On Wednesday May 19th, Habitat Greater San Francisco had the honor of Mayor London Breed and Supervisor Rafael Mandelman joining us to celebrate the start of work at our affordable homes development in Diamond Heights, San Francisco. Construction work will start immediately and families will be moving into the 8 new homes in the summer of 2023.
In the heart of San Francisco’s Diamond Heights, Habitat is building our latest affordable homes on donated land. The donor, 99 year old Mischa Seligman, was honoring the wishes of his mother who loved San Franciscans and wanted to give back to the city she loved dearly. This development is a prime example of ‘urban refill’. Habitat’s innovative design creates 8 homes on land which previously held only one. This type of development has the potential to make a significant contribution to addressing California’s acknowledged housing shortfall.
