Developer Announces Community Meeting for ‘First of Its Kind’ Proposal

A RENDERING OF THE ORIGINAL 103-UNIT DEVELOPMENT. PLANS NOW CALL FOR AN ADDITIONAL FLOOR AND 10 MORE UNITS.

A developer has announced the date and time of its first community outreach meeting for a unique Excelsior housing project that was announced last year by Mayor Ed Lee.

SST Investments, a developer that promised to build a 103-unit development made of half rent-controlled and half below market rate units at 915 Cayuga Ave., will hold a community outreach meeting later this week in accordance with the Planning Department’s development process.

When it was announced in an Oct. 24, 2016, press release, the proposal was lauded as a “first of its kind” development by then-District 11 Supervisor candidate Ahsha Safai, and criticized as suspicious by then-District 11 Supervisor John Avalos.

A year later, SST Investments now plans to construct 113 units, 5,958 square feet of commercial space and a five-story frontage on Alemany Boulevard, according to Office of Economic and Workforce Development spokesperson Gloria Chan.

A formal development agreement is now expected to be ready for the Planning Commission in Fall 2018 instead of Winter 2017 as originally planned, according to Chan.

The meeting will be held at 10 a.m. on Saturday, Nov. 18, in the Ingleside Police Station community room.
