What It Is Today
The existing Alice Griffith community consists of 256 units of multi-family public housing in San Francisco’s southeast sector. The housing and its surrounding areas need extensive rehabilitation. A ground-up, completely new community is the most efficient and cost-effective way to provide existing residents with the highest quality housing that is both environmentally sound and equipped with modern amenities.

What It Will Be
The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) selected the HOPE SF transformation plan for Alice Griffith Public Housing Development and the surrounding Bayview neighborhood as a 2011 recipient of the selective Choice Neighborhoods Implementation Grant. HUD also approved an Exclusive Negotiating Rights Agreement for the revitalization of Alice Griffith with the Lennar Corporation and its development partner, McCormack Baron Salazar, setting the stage for the inclusion of Alice Griffith in Lennar's pending Candlestick Point-Hunters Point Shipyard Phase 2 mixed-use development project. The project will include:
|•||A completely rebuilt Alice Griffith community|
|•||More than 10,000 new residential units|
|•||More than 300 acres of new and improved parks and open space|
|•||Vastly expanded transportation systems|
|•||Extensive new retail and office space|
|•||A research and development campus|
|•||Alice Griffith will be revitalized according to the same guiding principles and ultimate goals as all HOPE SF sites.|
|•||Commencement of the Alice Griffith revitalization will occur during the first phase of the Candlestick Point-Hunters Point Shipyard development project.|
|•||The Alice Griffith units will be replaced one-for-one and construction will be phased, so that all qualifying residents can have a home in the revitalized community and disruption to residents' lives is minimized.|
Throughout the development process, Alice Griffith residents and the Development Team will work together on core issues such as architectural design, services delivery, site amenities, and relocation planning.
Financing for the newly rebuilt Alice Griffith will come from tax increment revenue generated by the Candlestick Point-Hunters Point Shipyard redevelopment program, developer subsidies for each Alice Griffith and affordable rental unit, and other City affordable-housing sources.
