A San Francisco public housing redevelopment initiative has struggled to live up to its hype since its launch eight years ago. HOPE SF is currently focusing on four existing developments in or near the Bayview-Hunters Point neighborhood of the city. The four properties will be redeveloped into almost 4,700 units of mixed-income housing, retaining 1,914 units for public housing residents. Bayview is a neighborhood known for it’s crime and poverty.
- A number Bayview-Hunters Point residents live below the poverty level.
- Initiative has lone project starts lined up for 2016 and 2017.
- Properties slated for redevelopment where initially built as temporary barracks.
