Creating a Neighborhood of Opportunity
MEDA makes its Mission commercial spaces available to community-serving and family-serving small businesses, plus nonprofit organizations.
MEDA prioritizes space availability for businesses and institutions that are aligned with achieving our mission and vision.
We seek to ensure a balance of supporting financial viability for our buildings while fostering neighborhood development goals that preserve the culture and character of the Mission and best meet the needs of the local community.
As part of MEDA’s Mission community development strategy, we are looking to preserve or produce 200,000 square feet of commercial space by 2020. Some of that space will be produced in our new affordable-housing developments, while other space will be preserved as part of San Francisco’s Small Sites Program. We are designing other strategies to complement this existing work.
