Community Housing Partnerships (CHP) and Bridge Housing Corporation broke ground last fall at Mission Bay South Block 9, also known as 410 China Basin. The 92,000 square foot, four-story structure featuring 141 modular affordable rental studios for formerly homeless individuals, along with on-site supportive services, is expected to welcome inhabitants as early as January 2022. The Office of Community Investment and Infrastructure (OCII) selected the two nonprofits to develop the project in 2017.
“This was an important and desirable site to provide homes for folks in a wonderful neighborhood,” said Rick Aubry, CHP’s chief executive officer. “The City urged that there be a joint venture on it. Bridge, which is a very large nonprofit housing developer, has expertise in getting a project off the ground. CHP has expertise in providing supportive services to the building. For this project, Bridge claims the lead role in the early stages, and CHP will be taking the lead once the building is completed, in management and services at the site.”
