San Francisco’s teachers need affordable housing they can purchase so they can be rooted in the city in which they educate our children. Using 2019’s voter-approved Prop E funding, MEDA looks to create a nine-story, mixed-use building comprising 63 two- and three-bedroom workforce units just for San Francisco-based teachers, A portion of the first and second floors will be a 2,500-square foot community-serving space.
When 2205 Mission St. came up as an opportunity, it was priced for 100% luxury housing and would have been yet another development changing the neighborhood fabric. To secure this prime corner of Mission Street, we purchased 2205 Mission.
- To provide intergenerational wealth-building opportunities for San Francisco workers.
- To develop a model for workforce housing in the City of San Francisco in order to address the needs of the households that earn just above the maximum to qualify for low-income tax credit programs, yet earn too little to pay for market-rate housing.
- To support San Francisco’s education system by increasing teachers’ ability to live in the city.
