Park Merced Housing Walk
The Park Merced Housing development in the southwest corner of San Francisco was built in the 1940s by Metropolitan Life Insurance as an investment in housing affordable to working people. It was a visionary mix of high-rise towers and two-story garden apartments within a historic landscape. MetLife sold the complex in the early 1970’s, and now, the current ownership group has decided they want to keep the seismically unsafe high-rise towers but demolish the two story garden apartments. Learn the issues and get an update on legal actions in a walking tour with members of the Park Merced Action Committee, which is fighting to save this vital and vibrant community.
