1979 Mission proposes a number of enhancements that aim to transform the BART Plaza at 16th Street and Mission into an active, engaging community center. The project proposes to offer 345 units of housing, including both homes and apartment rentals, with affordable units set aside for middle-income families to own a home in San Francisco. Additionally, 1979 Mission will renovate the transit plaza to include more than 32,000 square feet of retail space, creating an opportunity for local small businesses to engage more closely with their community, while also spurring economic development. Designed by the architecture firm of Skidmore, Owings & Merrill, LLC, and overseen by Maximus Real Estate Partners, 1979 Mission leverages the expertise of landscape designers, construction managers, and utilities professionals to create an environmentally conscious, community focused project. The proposed residences will feature technology such as Energy Star-rated appliances and low-flow plumbing fixtures to facilitate sustainability and cost-effectiveness for future residents. The 16th and Mission project will also feature green spaces, including rooftop gardens and courtyard landscaping, to beautify the community.1979 Mission draws on extensive community insight and feedback gathered from local residents, community leaders, businesses and organizations at more than 100 planning meetings. The project strives to be a community-focused development, introducing expanded sidewalks, enhanced lighting, 164 new bicycle parking spaces and additional speed bumps to make local streets safer and more welcoming to cyclists and pedestrians.
