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.

“The Swinerton Team went above and beyond to help us complete a successful project that now provides homes for more than 80 families in the Tenderloin.  The care and attention which the Swinerton provided grows out of the Swinerton culture.  They are a large national firm with a distinctly local focus.” Paula Collins, GLIDE Economic Development Corporation.
