DFAR12: Mary Helen Rogers Senior Community 

03-23-2015 16:36

This residential community was the winning entry in a design competition sponsored by the former San Francisco Redevelopment Agency (SFRA) and was made possible by the SFRA's acquisition of seven of the 22 parcels left by the demolition of the Central Freeway following the 1989 Loma Prieta earthquake. The development of these former freeway off-ramps provided an opportunity to further the city's affordable housing goals, while also meeting the changing needs of the Western Addition neighborhood.
