Mission Rock Wire

In what has turned out to be a banner day for affordable housing, the San Francisco Giants are boosting the proportion of affordable units at their Mission Rock development. Forty percent of the 1,500 apartments would be below market rate. The Giants, who are leasing the land from the Port of San Francisco, had already agreed to make 33 percent of the units affordable, but Supervisor Jane Kim found the income cap on those rentals too high for a project on taxpayer-owned land. The Giants' new plan won over Kim and the rest of the supervisors, but it will still need voter approval in November because the buildings will exceed waterfront height limits.
