In the middle of the beautiful Mission Bay neighborhood of San Francisco sits the Tenderloin Neighborhood Development Corporation’s 626 Mission Bay Boulevard affordable housing apartments. The building is a testament to its community: with 143 units, including studios, 1-, 2-, and 3-bedroom homes, the pet-friendly development hosts a range of families as diverse as the neighborhood.
The TNDC initiative, which completed construction in 2018, was designed for both large and small families. It also houses previously unhoused individuals, senior citizens, and transitional-age youth. And what better spot than the heart of Mission Bay? The complex is practically a Steph Curry 3-pointer away from the Chase Center, the new home of the Golden State Warriors, and a baseball’s throw from Oracle Park where the San Francisco Giants play. Also nearby are lovely parks, convenient shopping, and multiple public transit options.
A GreenPoint Gold Rated development, 626 Mission Bay Blvd boasts onsite services from TNDC, interior courtyards for resident use, community and multipurpose rooms, and shared gardens. Dedicated to helping those most in need, to qualify, residents must earn less than 50% of the area median income. TNDC’s partnership with San Francisco’s Mayor’s Office of Housing and Community Development allows for this space to support and be utilized by the city’s own residents.
