After Fire, Mercy Housing Opens 1180 Fourth
Following March's blazing fire down the street that sparked some obvious delays, Mercy Housing's $55M 150-unit affordable housing project is officially complete. It's among the 2,078 apartment units completed in S.F. this year, up from 1,750 in 2013, according to Polaris Pacific. 1180 Fourth is leased out and move-ins have been underway since late summer. There were no material delays due to the fire, we hear. The project houses low income, very low income and formerly homeless individuals and families. With building design by Mithun|Solomon and Kennerly Architecture, the lobby has a framed view of the bay, and there's a space to accommodate giant outdoor movies. There's also 11k SF of retail lining Fourth Street, anchored by a corner restaurant (all up for lease) and a community building facing Channel Park.
