Number of Units

1950 Mission will be a mixed-use housing complex for low income families, including formerly homeless families. Mission Housing and BRIDGE Housing along with David Baker Architects were recently selected by the Mayor’s Office of Housing & Community Development to develop the undertaking. The general contractor is Swinerton Builders.

Resident services
On-site supportive services will be provided to residents by Mission Housing Development Corporation, PODER and Lutheran Social Services. Another partner, Mission Neighborhood Centers, will operate a new Head Start & Early Head Start youth space.

Design features
Amenities on the drawing board include: a rooftop garden for residents, a courtyard, a community room, a kitchen, and a bike workshop that will focus on training youth from the property and the surrounding communities on bike maintenance. Neighborhood-service retail space will be available for local nonprofits and entrepreneurs. Affordable gallery and work spaces will cater to the Mission District artist community.

The development, projected to cost around $80 million, is being financed by San Francisco housing bond dollars and federal low-income housing tax credits.

The 1950 Mission Street site is a 36,398 square foot parcel situated in the heart of the dynamic Mission district between 15th and 16th Streets and a short walk from the 16th Mission BART station. Formerly Phoenix Continuation High School, the site was abandoned and listed as surplus property by San Francisco Unified School District in 2002. The City of San Francisco purchased the property from SFUSD in 2015.
