Union Sponsored Affordable Housing in San Francisco:
St. Francis Square Cooperative - Tour
Join our walking tour and institutional and development history discussion of the now fifty-one-year-old 299 affordable multi family garden apartments sponsored by the Longshore and Warehouse Union (ILWU). This complex created a new community that mitigated some of the destructive displacement effects of Western Addition Redevelopment. The buildings and landscaping were designed by renowned architects Robert Marquis, Claude Stoller and Lawrence Halprin. The Square is still home to a number of union leaders, although it has now evolved to a market rate coop. Residents and coop leaders Norm Young and Nan Park, will be tour guides.
