New Homes in San Francisco – Residential Homes (Under Construction) – 13/28
1180 Fourth St
1180 Fourth Street marks the corner of 4th and Channel Streets as a gateway to San Francisco’s Mission Bay South. This setting carries civic obligations unusual for an affordable housing project; it demands a welcoming and richly articulated building to set the standard for development to follow. As a community-oriented development for 150 low-income families, this building must hold its own amongst larger, market-rate neighbors and biotech campuses.
The project includes 11,000 square feet of retail space lining Fourth Street, anchored by a corner restaurant space, and a community building facing Channel Park to serve the greater neighborhood. Common areas include two mid-block courtyards and a rooftop garden; a teen room, exercise room, day care and supportive services. The building is designed to be GreenPoint Rated.

Mercy Housing California began construction in August 2012 on this affordable family residential and commercial development at 1180 – 4th Street in the Mission Bay South Redevelopment Project Area. Construction completion is scheduled for June 2014 with families taking residence in their new homes next summer. The project – 150 residential units for very low and low income families including 25 units for formerly homeless households – straddles San Francisco’s South of Market neighborhood and the new Mission Bay area, home to a new campus and medical center for the University of California, San Francisco. The irregularly shaped 1.49 acre parcel is bordered by Channel on the northwest, Fourth Street on the east, and future Longbridge Street on the southeast. The housing will include:
41 one-bedroom apartments
46 two-bedroom apartments
52 three-bedroom apartments
1 one-bedroom townhouse
8 two-bedroom townhouses
2 three-bedroom townhouses
residential common areas
2 designated family day care units and several open spaces
A large community room will serve the residents of 1180 – 4th Street and will also be open during weekdays for the after school program for grade school children living at the building. Priority of the space will be given to the residents of the building and local community groups. A restaurant will anchor the corner of 4th and Channel Streets and the remaining 5-7 commercial spaces will be marketed to neighborhood-serving commercial tenants and will extend down the 4th Street commercial corridor wrapping around Longbridge Street. Total residential square footage is 217,620 square feet; total commercial square footage is 11,000 square feet; and the total project cost is $75,277,964.
