As we first reported earlier this week, the master plan for redeveloping the 33-acre public housing development atop Potrero Hill is ready for its first public review. And now, it’s time to take a peek at the latest renderings for the project which will completely transform the southeast slope of Potrero Hill (and beyond).
As designed by Van Meter Williams Pollack for Bridge Housing, up to 1,700 residential units could be constructed across the 33-acre site, with buildings rising up to 65-feet in height.
In addition to the 600 public housing units which would be rebuilt, up to 450 new Below Market Rate (BMR) units and 630 market rate units would be added to the community, centered around 24th Street with up to 15,000 square feet of ground-floor retail, a 35,000 square foot Community Center, and a new 24th Street Park.
The rebuilt public housing units would remain subsidized by the San Francisco Housing Authority but would be managed and owned by BRIDGE Housing or related entities. And if approved, the HOPE-ful redevelopment would occur in three phases, beginning in 2015 and spanning around 10 years in order to minimize disruption to existing residents.
