Folsom/Essex Supportive Housing Community Meeting
|February 22, 2010||Posted by jamie under Buildings||
2/22/2010 Update: Some clarification from Chris Jaksa on the agenda for Wednesday’s meeting is … “the meeting on wednesday will discuss iterations on the proposed plan, not simply a defense of the current rationale that excludes retail frontage- we are expecting 100 % retail along folsom. this can be done while still allowing chp to continue its mission to the residents of the building.”
As a follow-up from the Transbay Citizens Advisory Committee (CAC) meeting a couple of weeks ago where the CAC asked the project sponsors for the 126-unit supportive housing development on Folsom Street at Essex Street to meet with Rincon Hill residents, a meeting has been scheduled for this Wednesday, February 24th at 6:30pm at The Metropolitan (333 1st Street) in the Activity Room (see the concierge at the 1st Street entrance to The Metropolitan for entry to the Activity Room). Meet with our friends from Community Housing Partnership and Leddy Maytum Stacy Architects to discuss the architectural plans and rationale for using a portion of the ground- floor Folsom frontage for non-retail space. Please keep in mind this meeting is not intended for neighbors to express disagreement with a supportive housing project going up in the Rincon Hill neighborhood – the intention of the meeting is to learn and to discuss the architectural features and uses of the building that will go up on Folsom Street at Essex for supportive housing.
