990 Pacific Avenue Apartments

Project Details

  • Client: Chinatown Community Development Center
  • Location: San Francisco, CA
  • Size: 63,000 square feet
  • Projected Construction Start: Q4 2015

As part of the Mayor’s Office of Housing Rental Assistance Development Program, the City of San Francisco is transferring 990 Pacific Avenue, a multifamily apartment building built in 1968 for low-income seniors, to the Chinatown Community Development Center, a private nonprofit organization.

Built in 1968, 990 Pacific Avenue incorporates 92 units of housing for low-income seniors. As part of a major seismic retrofit and systems upgrade, the units themselves are to be modernized and renovated, but the building will remain true to the late 1960s modernist style of the original designer, noted Bay Area architect John Bolles.
