The Housing Advocacy Coalition is proud to announce its endorsement of AGI-KASA Partners’ proposed project at South San Francisco’s PUC site. After an extensive presentation from the project team, our Project Review Committee determined the proposal would help address crises caused by our housing shortage through creation of well-designed new homes, located near transit. The Committee would also like to highlight the various difficulties associated with maximizing the potential of the site to serve the community with housing.
AGI-KASA Partners’ proposed 800 new homes would transform the currently empty PUC site into desperately needed homes for people. In addition, the team’s proposal for 20% subsidized affordable homes in a stand-alone building would bring even deeper levels of affordability to the community. While the 800 homes are significant, HAC would like to see this site’s potential maximized to include 1,000 homes, moving us further toward ending our housing shortage.
This project places homes within a half mile of the BART station, getting residents out of their cars, and decreasing vehicle miles traveled. With this in mind, HAC would like to see the project decrease the number of parking spaces. Parking drives up housing costs and increases congestion, undermining the project’s proximity to transit.
