New SFUSD Educator Housing in Outer Sunset

San Francisco is building new housing just for SFUSD educators

SFUSD teacher educating students

Background

San Francisco is facing an educator shortage! To help SFUSD retain its educators and keep its schools strong, Mayor Ed Lee has committed to providing the funding needed to build affordable educator housing at the Francis Scott Key Annex, 1360 43rd Avenue.

What’s planned?

A high-quality housing development of over 100 rental units with a mix of bedroom sizes. The homes will be affordable to low-, moderate- and middle-income SFUSD educator households.

What's the planned timeline?

Winter 2017-2018   The appointed selection panel from the City and SFUSD chooses the winning development team
Spring 2018-2019   The development team does community outreach, architectural design, and other predevelopment work
Fall 2019   The Developer secures financing commitments
Winter 2019-2020   The City issues planning and building permits
2020-2022   Construction!
