53 Colton is a proposed 96-unit apartment building for formerly homeless single adults in the Hub neighborhood of San Francisco. The project was awarded an $11.5 million award from the HCD Multifamily Housing Program in December 2019 and a competitive TCAC/CDLAC award in April 2020. Groundbreaking is expected by winter 2020/2021 with a target opening date of spring/summer 2022.

The project is a joint venture with Strada Investment Group.

The building design includes an onsite resident services suite which can be accessed by all residents free of charge. On-site amenities also include a community room, community kitchen with pantry, laundry room, and outdoor courtyard.
