Bringing Homes to Balboa Reservoir

12:30 p.m. | Thursday, May 31, 2018
Located on a 17-acre parcel close to a BART and Muni Metro station, City College and other amenities, the Balboa Reservoir is an important site for new mixed-income housing in San Francisco. As part of the city’s Public Land for Housing program, a development team was recently selected to create up to 1,100 homes, a 2-acre central park and several mini-parks, childcare and more on the site. Join us to hear about the project’s vision, timeline and the next steps in the process.

Despite chilly winds last Thursday May 17, many local residents turned out for the community walk from the site of the proposed Balboa Reservoir housing project to the Balboa Park BART and MUNI Station, to evaluate the hazards to pedestrians and bicyclists. The aim of the developers and the City is to encourage more car-free transit use for new and existing residents in the area, but this particular route can be unpleasant and dangerous. There will be improvements to this route, including items already planned in SFMTA’s Ocean Avenue project. More about that here.

Many representatives were present from the AvalonBay/BRIDGE development team for the project, as well as from SFMTA and WalkSF, to take feedback and offer participants the chance to answer survey questions about various elements of this quarter-mile stretch of Ocean Ave. Developer website: http://www.balboareservoir.com/

It was a lively conversation. A great many on the walk participants were seasoned transit users with clear opinions about this infamous route to the Station.  A reporter from the Ingleside-Excelsior Light was present.
