Affordable Housing Complex at Mission Bay Welcomes Applications
Some Priority Given to Employees of Public Universities and Health Care Institutions 

A new affordable housing complex adjacent to UC San Francisco’s Mission Bay campus is accepting applications now through Dec. 21, 2016.

Employees of public universities and health care institutions in San Francisco, including UCSF, who have eligible family incomes will receive preference for 50 of the units, which total 25 percent of the total units in the planned complex.

Located on the corner of Fourth Street at 588 Mission Bay Blvd., the complex is being constructed by a non-UCSF developer in partnership with the City and County of San Francisco. Called FIVE88, the housing complex includes 198 units, 70 one-bedrooms and 128 two-bedrooms. It features a clubhouse with fitness center, garage parking, a 200-space bicycle storage area, laundry facilities and a lounge.

The deadline for applications is 5 p.m. on Wed., Dec. 21, 2016. The complex is scheduled to open in February 2017.

FIVE88 targets households in San Francisco with incomes up to 60 percent of the area median income, which is considered low income. Examples of household incomes eligible to apply and detailed information about the application and lottery process are included on the property’s website. UCSF does not expect to have a significant number of employees with household incomes eligible for this particular property.
