New Timing for Navigation Centers and Their RedevelopmentJune 4, 2018
Originally slated to be shuttered in the second quarter of the year, which “would leave the community with a vacant, inactive, and unsecured lot that would become a blight to the community” prior to the redevelopment of the site breaking ground, the proposed closing date for the Mission District Navigation Center at 1950 Mission Street, which could be approved this week, has been be pushed back to September 30, 2018.
And with the building permits for the redevelopment – which will yield of 157 below market rate apartments in a building rising up to nine stories in height upon the former Phoenix Continuation High School site – having been approved, the project team is aiming to break ground in November.
At the same time, the proposed closing date for the Civic Center Navigation Center at 20 12th Street, within the Civic Center Hotel, is slated to be pushed back to from 2019 to the end of 2021 as well.
We’ll keep you posted and plugged-in.
UPDATE: According to the legislation, the development team behind the 1950 Mission Street project won’t be ready to begin construction until “October 2019,” as orginally reported above. But according to the team itself, they’re planning to break ground this November, as since updated above.

Damn. Does that mean the Civic Center project isn’t beginning construction until 2021?!
[Editor’s Note: See: (The Phased) Timing for a Transformative Market Street Project and New Park.]
Phase 1 of that was meant to break ground this March. Did it? I haven’t seen signs of progress when I bike past.
UPDATE: While the proposed legislation to extend operations for the two centers was written with an expected ground breaking for the 1950 Mission Street site in “October 2019,” according to the development team, they’re actually planning to begin construction this November (2018).
The Civic Center Hotel was to be remodeled in the 2nd or 3rd phase of this project. The first includes construction of the affordable housing on Colton Alley and the new home for the Plumber’s Union on Market which should commence this Fall.
UPDATE: Financing for 157 Affordable Apartments Nearly Secured
