Just released! CCHO’s District Housing Snapshots 2014

20 07 2015

Fresh off the presses!  In anticipation of the release of the San Francisco Planning Department’s new Housing Balance Report, we at CCHO have compiled a 2014 Housing Snapshot of each of the 11 supervisorial districts of the City.  The goal of the snapshot is to understand at a finer-grain level where affordable housing is being produced and lost in neighborhoods across the city right now – reflecting not just trends over the past ten years, but the balance of housing production as residents are experiencing it at ground level currently. We will update this District Housing Snapshots report annually.

We hope you take a moment to read the full report.

Overall, only 22% of the new housing produced in 2014 was affordable.  While the city gained 698 deed restricted affordable units last year, it lost 313 existing rent controlled units. Even more troubling is the future trend. Only 8% of the 14,405 entitled units in the 2014 pipeline were affordable. For long-range projects that are not yet entitled, the percent of affordable units is also 8%, a clear sign that without drastic changes, the affordable housing crisis is going to get worse.
