RISING IN THE FACE OF A HOUSING CRISIS
San Francisco’s Mission District has always been a supportive place for low-income and immigrant Latinos, but it’s now one of the most unaffordable neighborhoods in the country. In fact, 8,000 Latinos have been forced from their homes since the year 2000 — that’s over 25 percent of this community. MEDA is using our 40+ years of experience to keep Latinos and working families in the Mission District and help them thrive.
2205 Mission is a new development that will bring 48 units of for-pay affordable family housing to the Mission, available to households in the 80 to 120 percent Area Median Income (AMI) level.
The current plan is to build 48 units of below-market-rate (BMR) affordable housing. As 50 percent of homes will be two- or three-bedroom units, the space needs of families will be met.
The existing structure, which dates form 1924, has been shuttered for many years and has significant deferred maintenance. Plans call for the salvaging of the bottom two floors, with a possible six stories above. There will be no negative lighting or air effects on neighboring structures.
Dance Mission will be finding a new home at the site. There will be approximately 10,000 square feet of performing arts space for Dance Mission, comprising a 200-seat theater, three rehearsal studios and an office space.
With the need for more early learning centers in the community, Mission Neighborhood Centers will locate a brand-new facility at 2205 Mission St., with 6,800 square feet available.

Our vision for this site is guided by the community’s need for family-centered homes, affordable arts space and early learning centers. Community input is sought, via planned meetings, so that the final product will best meet our neighborhood’s needs.
2205 Mission will open in mid-2021. Please check back to this page for scheduled community meetings.
