Blocks A&B Design Presentation II
On October 18, the Rebuild Potrero team held a second community meeting for blocks A&B, bounded by 25th, 26th, Connecticut and Wisconsin streets. The purpose of the meeting was to present building designs for these blocks and to respond to questions and concerns expressed at the first meeting on July 19th. Over 60 Potrero Hill neighbors attended the meeting and Supervisor Malia Cohen also participated. The response to the proposed building elevations and interior courtyard landscape designs shown by the architects was generally positive. While the new housing will include both public housing eligible residents and working families making up to $64,000 for a family of four, Parkview Heights residents are concerned that there is no market rate housing proposed to be included on these blocks. The project team will continue to meet with neighborhood residents to discuss their concerns and address the challenges of trying to bring this ambitious undertaking to fruition.
