2070 Bryant Street Affordable Family Housing in the Mission

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 in the last decade — 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.

The proposed 2070 Bryant development, designed by Mithun architects, calls for 130 affordable apartment rentals for families. Forty-two percent of units will be two bedrooms or larger, with 30 percent of apartments set aside for formerly homeless families.

VISION

MEDA and Tenderloin Neighborhood Development Corporation (TNDC) were selected as the joint-venture nonprofit developers of 2070 Bryant by the San Francisco Mayor’s Office of Housing and Community Development (MOHCD).

Three key goals for 2070 Bryant are:

  • Fostering a safe home for families and an inclusive environment that encourages community, while providing connections to the street, neighborhood and city beyond.
  • Incorporating resident and community amenities and on-site services that support all residents, especially formerly homeless households.
  • Creating an accessible, affordable place for arts-focused Production, Distribution and Repair (PDR) uses, providing a window of creativity from the street into a flexible and functional space.

JOIN THE CONVERSATION

Our vision for this site is guided by the community’s need for family-centered homes, affordable arts space and cultural preservation. Community input is sought, via planned meetings, so that the final product will best meet our neighborhood’s needs.

2070 Bryant will break ground once the adjacent market-rate development is completed. Please join the community discussion, or reach out with any questions by emailing us at 2070bryant@medasf.org.
