San Francisco Bears the Brunt for Bay Area Housing

A new report calls on San Francisco to provide the Bay Area with 15% of the 215,000 new homes required by 2014 to meet state housing laws. Other areas must add to the pot, of course— no penalties to those that don't comply, though such counties are wide open to potential lawsuits. So why is San Francisco responsible for the brunt of this new construction? Because of our relatively stable economy, relatively dense concentration of business and industry, and relatively decent mass transit. The San Francisco Office of Housing has no problem with this — as long as we get a proportionate increase in funding, of course. Many of these new homes will need to be available at a variety of income levels. Enter: Mission Bay and Bayview.
