Tour new green affordable senior housing with area architects (SF Civic Center)

  • This location is shown only to members

The Mary Helen Rogers Senior Community is a new affordable 100 unit apartment building located at the former Freeway Parcel ‘C’ property. While it is not cohousing, it could provide a model and partners for co-creating a space for aging in community. Perhaps we can meet afterwards and discuss community aspects and potential. *** NOTE CORRECTED DATE: February 5, not the 12th ***

It is at the edge of the Civic Center and The Western Addition neighborhoods.

It is one of the last properties developed under the San Francisco Redevelopment Association (SFRA).

This event is organized by the San Francisco chapter of the American Institute of Architects' Design for Aging committee. Note that it is not a cohousing-specific event. The audience is primarily architects, and the discussion is likely to be technical. RSVP here to share your interest, but actually reserve your spot using this link:

The building employs sustainable features and incorporates a retail space at the street level.  The tour will review the development of the property, its specific features, and how it serves senior residents.

Developer- Chinatown Community Development Center/UrbanCore w/SFRA

Architect-   HKIT Architects

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
