Transbay Block 9
The development will include a 400-foot tower designed by SOM, a 85-foot podium and a row of two-story townhouses designed by Fougeron Architecture. It will include a public open space and underground parking. Nonprofit affordable housing developer Bridge Housing is also on the development team, helping to secure tax-exempt financing for the affordable portion of the project.
Twenty percent of the apartment complex will be rented at a below market rate to people making half of the city’s median income. The affordable units will be sprinkled throughout the bottom half of the buildings “in a non-discriminatory fashion,” according to an OCII report.
