San Francisco

Small Sites, Big Impact

Lunchtime Forum

In the face of rising rents, increased evictions and property sales, San Francisco launched its Small Sites Program in July 2014 to fund the acquisition and rehabilitation of 5- to 25-unit rental buildings. Participating partners are able to remove these small sites from the market, make important capital repairs and then restrict them for long-term affordability. To date, the program has assisted 78 units in 13 buildings, with more to come in 2017. Learn about how the program is working, the opportunities for expansion and how it could be replicated in other cities. Co-presented by ULI San Francisco.
