Champions of housing beat out tree-hugging preservationists Tuesday night as the Board of Supervisors unanimously approved a plan to transform the UCSF Laurel Heights campus into a 744-unit housing and retail complex. Despite protests from many immediate neighbors — who said the project at 3333 California St. is out of scale with the residential enclave and would destroy too many mature trees — the board backed the project. More than five years in the making, the proposal includes 186 affordable units for seniors, a child care facility, 5 acres of open space and 35,000 square feet of retail. The project would be one of the largest built in that area of the city, which includes wealthy neighborhoods that have resisted both affordable and market-rate housing in recent decades. While opponents can still file a lawsuit over the project, the developer has a secret weapon: The proposal is covered under a state law that would speed up any court challenge to 270 days.

In late October, 58-year-old Rodney Randolph will move down the hill from his public housing unit in San Francisco’s once notorious Sunnydale public housing project to a fifth-floor apartment in a new building just completed two blocks away. It’s a five-minute walk from the old spot to the new place. But it feels like a world away. “Instead of facing these old Army barracks, I’m going to be facing the ocean,” said Randolph, an Army veteran who works odd jobs and volunteers for the Sunnydale Food Pantry. “I’ll sit back and look out at the water, the trees, maybe watch some birds flying.” The building Randolph will be moving into is the first replacement housing at Sunnydale, a decaying and isolated 765-unit Visitacion Valley public housing complex, which has traditionally had the city’s highest homicide rate. But it will not be the last. Eventually all the units at Sunnydale, spread over 50 acres at the foot of McLaren Park, will be … [Read more...] about SF’s public housing was crumbling. Is a multibillion-dollar makeover the answer?
Shantel McClendon says she’s tried to play by the rules to keep a roof over the heads of her five kids. But after a tumultuous two years in which she struggled to keep up with rent payments, secured and lost jobs, and endured a difficult, high-risk pregnancy, McClendon and her children — ages 16 months to 19 years — are facing eviction from their apartment at Valencia Gardens, a public housing complex in the Mission District. A series of alleged violations of her lease has prompted the property manager to try to kick out McClendon and her children. The John Stewart Co. alleged that McClendon has repeatedly violated her lease and the “house rules” that govern resident conduct at Valencia Gardens. The two sides have tried to reconcile — and a settlement is still possible — but the company said it cannot continue to allow McClendon to break the rules. Signing a lease for subsidized housing means obeying the terms set out by federal and state … [Read more...] about ‘I’m scared:’ Single mother of five fights eviction from SF public housing
