San Francisco Affordable Senior Housing Project Gets Underway

Last month, the Community Housing Partnership (CHP) and Tenderloin Neighborhood Development Corporation celebrated the groundbreaking of Zygmunt Arendt House, CHP’s first housing development to exclusively serve senior citizens. When opened in early 2010, the $16 million Zygmunt Arendt House will serve as a home for 47 formerly homeless seniors in San Francisco’s NoPa neighborhood.  According to an article in the San Francisco Business Times, the House is being designed by WRT Solomon E.T.C. and built by James E. Roberts Obayashi Corp. The project is being co-developed by TNDC and Community Housing Partnership with financing from the City and County of San Francisco’s Mayor’s Office of Housing, the Zygmunt Arendt Fund, the California Department of Housing and Community Development, Silicon Valley Bank, the Federal Home Loan Bank Affordable Housing Program, and National Equity Fund.
