“The Bay Area faces an affordable housing crisis. The HIT’s mission of building affordable housing using union labor means addressing this social need while creating quality jobs, ensuring working families can afford to live in our community. ” —Rudy Gonzalez, Executive Director , San Francisco Labor Council


The AFL-CIO Housing Investment Trust (HIT) is helping to finance the $121.9 million new construction of the Ventana Residences, a Class A development featuring 193 mixed-income apartment units, of which 145 are market rate and 48 are workforce. The development also features a childcare facility. Ventana Residences is located in the Mission Terrace neighborhood of San Francisco.


As part of its recently announced $1 billion Bay Area Investment Initiative, the HIT is extending $52.0 million of an $80.0 million direct construction loan for Ventana Residences. In this Initiative, the HIT is prepared to invest $500 million in multifamily housing projects in the Bay Area over the next five years and expects to leverage an additional $500 million from other sources.


Ventana Residences is  located in a Qualified Opportunity Zone. The site qualified for HomeSF, a bonus program that permits  greater density in exchange for a higher percentage of Below Market-Rate (BMR) units. The BMR units will be rented to households earning between 55% and 110% of Area Median Income, making them affordable to essential workers in San Francisco and qualifying as workforce  housing. The majority of housing in the area was built before 1940 and new construction has been very limited in the last decade, heightening the need for additional housing units.
