San Francisco, CA–Mayor London N. Breed today announced that construction has begun on the Plumbers Union mixed-use project, which will transform a crucial stretch of Market Street by adding 580 new homes, including 96 supportive housing units for people experiencing homelessness, as well as a new union hall and public open space. The project is also expected to provide about 1,800 jobs, highlighting the economic benefits of housing production as the economy struggles to recover from the pandemic.
“We are proud to partner with Strada in the development of 96 permanent homeless supportive housing apartments at 53 Colton as a core part of the overall project,” said Rick Aubry, Chief Executive Officer of Community Housing Partnership. “CHP is celebrating its 30th anniversary and now, more than ever, adding new supported homes for people who have experienced homelessness is essential for the City we all love. We currently provide a home for over 1,900 residents our across the City and the new housing at Colton and other projects under development in partnership with the City will expand our capacity to address the challenge.”
