Document Description
The City and County of San Francisco (the City), acting by and through its San Francisco Public Utilities Commission (SFPUC), selected Reservoir Community Partners LLC (a joint venture between BRIDGE Housing Corporation and Avalon Bay Communities), to act as master developer for the redevelopment of a 17.6-acre site in the West of Twin Peaks area of south central San Francisco known as the Balboa Reservoir. The proposed project would develop the site with mixed-income housing, open space, a childcare facility/community room available for public use, retail space, on- and off-street parking, and new streets, utilities, and other infrastructure. Two different options for the site's residential density to capture a range of possible development on the project site are under consideration: The first is the Developer's Proposed Option (1,100 dwelling units), proposed by Reservoir Community Partners LLC. The second is the Additional Housing Option (1,550 dwelling units), developed by the City to fulfill the objectives of the San Francisco General Plan to maximize affordable housing and housing in transit-rich neighborhoods. Development under each of the two options would entail the same land uses and street configurations, and similar site plans. See NOC for full details.
