Document Description
The project would involve construction of 80 affordable housing units in 23 residential buildings on an approximately 13.6-acre vacant site at 8161 Redwood Boulevard, Assessor’s Parcel Number 125-180-49. The buildings would be made up of five different building types, ranging in size from one to six units and set around common greens and courtyards. The site would be designed in an oval pattern around a central open space and crossed by pathways and gathering areas. On-site amenities would include play areas, a small amphitheater for events, dog park, trails, seating areas, benches, tables, community garden, and a community meeting area. The project would be designed to integrate with the existing landscape to the extent possible by using building materials in a natural color pallet. The project would also include a commercial building on a separate legal parcel to be retained by Habitat for Humanity Greater San Francisco, Inc. (HGSF) on a 0.5±-acre portion of the 13.6-acre site. The approximately 2,154-square foot commercial building would be single-story and contain an approximately 700-square foot conference room, two office spaces of approximately 380 and 280 square feet respectively, and a lobby.
