It’s been almost two years since we first plugged our readers in to San Francisco’s Housing Element Report. As we wrote at the time, San Francisco’s big picture (click to enlarge) housing pipeline was as so:
∙ 156 projects with 6,510 housing units are currently under construction
∙ 168 projects representing 2,850 units have received a building permit
∙ 316 projects representing 4,480 units have applied for a building permit
∙ 92 projects representing 6,200 units have been approved by the Planning Department
∙ 130 projects representing 34,750 units have filed for Planning Department approval
In total, 54,790 new housing units were under construction, on the boards or under consideration to be built in San Francisco over the long-term.
The challenge, an estimated 31,000 new units, “60% of which should be suitable for housing for the extremely low, very low, low and moderate income households,” will be needed in San Francisco to meet projected demand in the nearer-term.
The evening at 6pm San Francisco’s Planning Commission will review and vote on the adoption of the report’s objectives and policies, a report which is a treasure trove of San Francisco facts and figures for the real estate obsessed.
Oh, and did somebody say density?
