Construction has commenced at the southeast corner of Folsom and Essex, also known as Transbay Block 11A. As plugged-in people know, it’s an eight (8) story building with 120 below market rate apartments for the formerly homeless, a suite for supportive services, and two market rate retail spaces that’s rising on the former surface area parking site.
The project will also yield a wider Essex Street sidewalk, a bulb out on the corner of Folsom and Essex, and two new rows of urban trees (click image below to enlarge).
The building is now slated to be construction complete by September 2013.
