The Richmond SF Blog brings word that construction of the St. Peter's Episcopal Church's new housing facility for the developmentally disabled, called St. Peter's Place, is nearly complete. There's 20 units for adults with development disabilities to live on their own, with "supervision by a social worker who can link them to education, employment, medical care and social activities." The site where the facility is being built was once the church's sanctuary on 29th Avenue between Geary and Clement. It was damaged in the 1989 earthquake and was vacant until now. St. Peter's worked with the Bernal Heights Neighborhood Center for the construction, and the project received funds from the Mayor's Office of Housing, the state and the Department of Housing and Urban Development. The project is slated to receive LEED Gold certification.
