Swinerton built this concrete-frame, 14-story affordable housing structure in San Francisco’s Tenderloin district. This building features 81 affordable one-, two-, three-, and four-bedroom apartments for working families, along with parking and support services. Designed to foster a sense of community, the building features beautifully landscaped courtyards, a secure sun-filled outdoor play area for children, community lounge areas with outdoor decks, and a multipurpose room for community events. Sustainable features include high-efficiency boilers, green carpet, and nearly 90% of construction waste recycling. This project received the Gold Nugget Grand Award for Senior Housing and the 2009 National Readers Choice by Affordable Housing Finance magazine.
