The $150 million project involved construction of a new 326-unit rental complex at 333 Harrison Street in San Francisco’s Rincon Hill neighborhood in the South of Market (SOMA) district. The seven-story residential building has 277 market rate units and 49 affordable units set aside for residents earning no more than 30% of the area median income. The unit mix includes studios and one- and two-bedroom apartments. There are also two levels of underground parking.
The HIT purchased taxable Ginnie Mae construction loan certificates and a permanent loan certificate totaling $70 million from Red Mortgage Capital. The loan is insured under FHA Section 221(d)(4).
Known as Rincon Green at 333 Harrison, the project is contributing to San Francisco’s effort to develop downtown neighborhoods by providing much needed rental housing for people at a variety of income levels. It is bringing mixed-income housing to the Rincon Hill area at the eastern end of the city’s large SOMA district, an area that has been undergoing considerable redevelopment.
The project also exemplifies transit-oriented development with its location near San Francisco’s Transbay Transit Center, which is being developed as a mass-transit hub for the region’s public bus and rail systems. The project’s design
includes such energy efficient features as a green roof and solar hot water system.
All on-site construction work at 333 Harrison was performed under collective bargaining agreements with local building and construction trades unions, generating an estimated 728 union construction jobs.*
