Housing Woes

New, 1 comment

Several long-stalled mixed-use and housing projects in the Upper Market/Castro are finally underway, but affordable housing will still fall short of meeting demand in the neighborhood. Of the 9 approved residential and mixed-use projects in the area, 7 will have Below Market Rate units for a total of 228 coming up for lease or purchase beginning in the fall. The other 2 developments, including the nearly completed ICON project at 2299 Market Street, opted instead to pay $5 million each of in-lieu fees, which will probably lead to affordable housing, but not in the Castro. -Laura Tepper [Bay Area Reporter/Photo via David Sweet Photography]
