Community Housing Partnership and BRIDGE Housing have been selected by the San Francisco Redevelopment Agency, to develop new housing in the Transbay Redevelopment Area. Following completion of the project, Community Housing Partnership will remain the owner and property manager of the site. The building will be named Rene Cazenave Apartments, in memory of Rene Cazenave a founding board member of Community Housing Partnership who was at the center of the affordable housing movement in San Francisco for over 40 years. Leddy Maytum Stacy Architects is the architect for the project.
Rene Cazenave Apartments will be a mid-rise, eight-story building. The proposed design includes 120 apartments, of which 12 are 1-bedroom units and 108 are studios. Ground floor spaces include a wide range of programming space, private courtyard, and two retail spaces. All tenants will be formerly homeless and referred by the San Francisco Department of Public Health. The site is located on Folsom Street at the northeast corner of Essex Street. Rene Cazenave Apartments is the first of several development sites in the San Francisco Redevelopment Agency Transbay Redevelopment Area and will serve as a gateway to the SFRA's vision of a new "main street" along Folsom Street.
