Supervisor Wiener’s proposed legislation to reduce the minimum legal living room for a residential unit in San Francisco from 220 to 150 square feet was passed by San Francisco’s Board of Supervisors last night.
Under the ordinance, which only applies to newly built buildings, the total minimum area of a legal residential unit will be 220 square feet including closets and the bathroom.
And while the number of market rate micro-units allowed to be built in San Francisco has been capped at 375, the Planning Department has been tasked with preparing a detailed report on the impact of the first 325 units, after which the cap could be modified.
The numerical cap excludes units built for affordable, group, or student housing.
