Located in the heart of San Francisco’s evolving Sixth Street redevelopment area, this environmentally responsible, mixed-use development is intended to serve the cities neediest and lowest income residents. The Plaza is the first newly constructed property fully dedicated to the San Francisco Health Department’s Direct Access to housing program and serves as a new national model for green supportive housing.
“The architects created an extraordinary project… This colorful and dignified building gives hope to residents and provides an anchor in a challenging neighborhood.”
