Enriching the City

1180 4th Street is a prominent symbol of San Francisco’s affordable housing efforts. The design brings a diverse population and dynamic exterior character to Mission Bay, introducing a vibrant complexity to the previously homogenous neighborhood.

Transforming Lives

The project delivers critically needed affordable housing for 150 low-income families, 50 of them formerly homeless. The rich program of tenant services and amenities – emphasizing fitness, nutrition, education and community life – are transformative in the lives of tenants.

Equity and Community

Sustainability and wellness grow from the urban context of this mixed-use development: walking distance to jobs, local and regional transportation, retail services and city parks.
