RISING IN THE FACE OF A HOUSING CRISIS
MEDA was chosen to build affordable housing at PotreroYard in San Francisco. As the City looks to restore the obsolete 107-year-old Potrero Bus Yard with a state-of-the-art bus storage facility, the development will also call for up to 575 affordable homes for families. This represents a major step forward in our community’s activism and work to reverse displacement of low- and moderate-income residents from a gentrifying neighborhood.
Approximately half of the residential units, which will occupy seven floors above the bus facility, are planned for low-income seniors, families and single-occupant households earning 80% or below of the Area Median Income (AMI), building on the City’s affordable housing goal. The remaining units will be available to moderate-income housing for households earning between 80% and 120% of the AMI.
As a Latino-led, Latino-focused organization, MEDA is excited by our Brown/Black partnership with Young Community Developers and Tabernacle Community Development Corporation. Additionally, we will work closely with SFMTA, Plenary Group and Presidio Development Partners.
