Is $5M about what the single family homes will cost?
is there any way for more homes to be built via increased density
Just want to say I am 100% in support of this project and would like to know what I can do to help it get through planning.
have you explored building less parking? will there be options for car free families
SB 35 allows for 100% Affordable Housing to be built by right
what about the carbon savings in transportation or from avoiding have to pave over more land somewhere else further for an equal amount of less densely built housing?
I just don't see how these townhomes or single family homes will be considered affordable!
Mike and Betsy can you find out when the Planning Commission vote will be and email the rest of us please?
this link from Cal shows that building urban infill housing is the #1 way that we can reduce greenhouse gasses at a local level is building more urban infill housing https://coolclimate.berkeley.edu/ca-scenarios/index.html
Denser cities are much, much greener as this and a million other studies/articles will show https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2012-04-19/why-bigger-cities-are-greener
Kudos to Todd! More research in support of his housing data https://www.spur.org/publications/white-paper/2020-03-09/what-it-will-really-take-create-affordable-bay-area
Happy to chat with anyone about why new housing is good for our community and our values
we should be denser!
Yes Cliff, there is a lot of affordable housing here. It’s all occupied. The city needs to build 100s of thousands of units to even begin to keep up with demand.
Beauty is subjective. I think it's pretty tbh
i'm not sure I understand this complaint when existing homes also go for millions of homes?
But Allison, WHY does SF need to build to keep up? WHY denser and denser and denser?? And for the super wealthy as the current speaker says?
Can I get on the speaker list?
Allison: The solution to the housing problem cannot be solves within the SF city limits. The problem has to be solved on a regional basis. The city is already the second most densely populated city in the US
9 below market units will be built if this project is approved. Denser because why should so many people be excluded from living in the city we all love? And Cliff, I worked for several years on a Bay Area Regional Strategy, which you can find here. https://www.spur.org/featured-project/spur-regional-strategy I am well aware of how much housing needs to be build region-wide and the extraordinary lengths so many people are going to in order to prevent it.
Alison they might be below market but they are still for the ultra one percent wealthy
my grandma is 80 and takes the bus everywhere!
I hope to ride Muni when I am 80
Chris--The 9 Affordable Housing units this project will finance is for low-income individuals.
Todd, I guess you'll need to explain that to me - I don't get it. email@example.com is my email, thanks
Happy to. Thanks. I'm firstname.lastname@example.org
replacing green space and building housing in dense urban areas is actually good for the environment
Green space? Glen Canyon is 60 acres and is one block north of this project. Billy Goat Hill is one block south (and has a great view for watching the moon)
I support the project but strongly agree with Robert that it should take advantage of the state density bonus
Thank you for hosting this!
