Curbed first told you about the St. Anthony Foundation's plan to demolish their current two-story building at Jones Street and Golden Gate Avenue in the Tenderloin back in April of 2010. The foundation wants to build a 10-story building with 90 affordable units for seniors. The nonprofit and Mercy Housing California hooked up with HKIT Architects to design the 99-foot tall building, which you can see above. Yesterday, the project received unanimous approval from the Planning Commission. The building will also have a new dining room, a free clothing shop, and a social work center. The $39 million project is on track to begin in July of 2012.
