According to our survey of the Planning Department’s data, there are roughly 8,100 net-new units of housing currently under construction in San Francisco and 5,600 units for which the building permits have been issued, approved or requested and construction could soon begin.
Another 28,300 units of housing have been approved to be developed, but that includes the 10,500 units by Candlestick, 7,800 units on Treasure Island and 5,680 units at Parkmerced, projects which have overall timelines measured in decades, not years.
And with proposals for an additional 12,600 units of housing currently being reviewed by the City’s Planning Department, San Francisco’s overall Housing Pipeline currently totals roughly 55,000 units, up from 50,000 at the end of last year.
For context, roughly 3,000 units of housing wrapped-up construction in San Francisco last year and a total of 13,000 units were added from 2007 through 2014 (27,000 units since the year 2000).
UPDATE: Due to a table error, our original post undercounted the number of units under construction by 800 while overstating the number of units awaiting a permit by roughly the same amount. The numbers have since been corrected above.
