230 New Families Housed,
130 More Units in Construction
In a year where the pandemic put a halt to a lot of plans, Mission Housing forged ahead with development plans and delivered homes in two different buildings and broke ground on another project in San Francisco's District 11.
La Fénix at 1950 Ribbon Cutting
On April 16, 2021, BRIDGE Housing and Mission Housing Development Corporation celebrated the ribbon-cutting of new affordable apartments for families at La Fénix at 1950, a 157-unit property built on a former San Francisco Unified School District site in the heart of San Francisco’s Mission District. The homes are affordable to households with incomes between 45% and 60% AMI, with 40 apartments set aside for formerly homeless families. Built with families in mind, amenities at La Fénix include a rooftop playground, landscaped courtyards, a spacious community room with a kitchen and a communal laundry room. Neighborhood-serving spaces include a childcare center operated by Mission Neighborhood Centers, art studios and a gallery operated by Acción Latina, as well as a bicycle repair shop operated by PODER. A quarter of the homes at La Fénix are for residents of the surrounding the neighborhood. More information: https://bridgehousing.com/properties/la-fenix/
