just to start off an organizer born and raised in the mission and fighting more affordable housing since i was 13 so this to me is so, so exciting i don't expect to cry but be prepared i'm so excited to have this built and our seniors feel there's something coming for them those voices marginalized in the community and voices sometimes they're afraid to speak i'm proud to say people support the affordable housing and support the - i've lead meetings two large committee meetings and we've listened to the folks but for me mainly those folks that don't get to speak and have a say what their homes will look like when they're seniors on fixed income
10:51 pm
so i'm overjoyed to hear seniors are for this and i you know they're all saying that i'm not religious by hoping the lord guides. >> but anybody you look at to this is really important this is people's lives i think know you've heard those are people's lives on the line and 50 more seniors can be housed if we raise it to 85 feet will benefit and a thank you for that and anymore affordable housing this is the first step and thank you for all the seniors and the folks that are here we deserve a pat on the back >> what's your name. >> i'm jesse with the
10:52 pm
environmental rights area here to urge your support for the increase in height for the building for seniors i'm overwhelmed completely by the wisdom and the trials and tribulations you've heard here today makes my heart really, really heavy but i'm proud to have folks come out and represent themselves to put themselves in the front of a process it so often excludes and marginalized them in the foyer years should be retired but making the city work for them they need respect let's go ahead and increase the height on this building and take advantage of the golden opportunity for 100 percent affordable housing for seniors but let's take advantage the golden opportunity and let
10:53 pm
the folks will their golden years with dignity and respect. >> thank you, mr. fernas. >> 100 percent i'm tony rob less i work with the action and president of the the i hotel and the legacy that was an injustice that happened 40 years ago thirty of those years we're waiting to get senior housing built on this spot with the origin hospitality was on the corner of jackson and kearny it happened let's not make the same mistake but built senior housing and approve the height limits seniors have been left off the table in the city's success isn't several years their needs have been secondary and we need to stop that that paradigm in my
10:54 pm
own work i see seniors that have been evicted out of homes they were once housed and part of the community but because of the lack of affordability the capital that is come into the city a diver situation for seminars let's - this is a great start but keep it going to make more of the development in the future our seniors are in desperate need of the housing thank you very much for your help and work. >> thank you, mr. rob less. >> so i'm here in support of this project and the increased height of this project our seniors are the greatest asset our treasure and for us to drive them out of the city or cause them to be homeless is really a crimes are we just
10:55 pm
going to have a city of young people who are being you should into all of those new tech jobs or are we're going to draw on the wisdom and the abilities and displacements of our seniors it is sad to see people lines up in - no fault of their own evicted from their homes up to you to determine what the quality of life is going to be for the seniors and the general population i ask you to do the right thing and vote to support this project. >> thank you. >> your name is jackie? thank you jackie >> next speaker, please.
10:56 pm
>> hello commissioners. i'm jeremy i'd like to urge our support for the project with the height increase as a native growing up in oakland and now in san francisco so for the last 4 years myself and others see the change happening and more often than not the marginalized people getting the short end of the stick with the seniors and people of low income so we can provide housing for them to remain in the city especially for people that help to make that wonderful and i'll urge your support for this issue. >> calling some more names
10:57 pm
(calling names). >> oh. >> i'm sorry okay. you bet. >> let's try (calling names) okay i got thrown off (calling names). >> how about anyone else. >> on this item. >> hi laura clark grow san
10:58 pm
francisco and obviously in support of this project more housing it is great i'm not in support of time wasting get everyone out in support of those projects those are the kind of projects that should be speed through the system approved watt the work that everyone has put into that to get people out on a thursday afternoon we could be doing things better with their time although this is fun there's a real opportunity to say we don't have to go to the song and dance with those obvious community benefits i'm excited we're getting to use the affordable housing density bonus program and more projects like this i hope the commission and planning department can look for more opportunities to figure out thirty how to expedite and get rid of of bureaucratic steps and
10:59 pm
say we don't need san francisco have the community put that kind of effort in supporting this project is so obvious what we need all the seniors that had to leave couldn't sit through the hours of hearings that's a tragedy not doing all the work that again have obviously benefits for everyone. >> thank you. any additional speakers on this item. >> please. anyone else? either here or in toverflow roo >> i came here to say i'm opposed i know i'm 9 months unpopular person but the project is important and should go
11:00 pm
forward more affordable housing what i'm not hearing e hearing the quality of life house people in. talltall: buildings that's not the kind of san francisco that people want to live in including the seniors and the idea of stopping evictions and causing this problem to happen in the first place why take people that live in their homes and have to stick them in a tall building in the middle of the mission not good but i have changed my mind and hope the project goes forward we have a desire need for this particular issue. >> next speaker, please. >> i support this program and this project and ask you all commissioners to look into the academy of art universities the thousand of units that were removed
11:01 pm
rent-controlled units and give priorities to seniors you can do that i brought that academy of art university some 10 years ago and the mayor and some others have been stalling this to do the right thing and i know that several of you commissioners maybe one or two should spear this and make those units available that will rental units to seniors and finally that's been said by the mentally and file number challenged need all our assistance thank you very much. >> thank you. >> next speaker, please. >> good afternoon, commissioners i'm an organizer thank you for the opportunity and i'm going to make it short please support the increase in height and density this is what we've gone fighting for clamoring for years of
11:02 pm
organizing and on the ground multiply house members of the committee and this is this is heartfelt seniors coming up as my parents age in an amazing city people should be living their golden years living not in cars and sofa so sofa they're a burden on their grandkids not what the city is about and the planning commission please approve the increase in height thank you very much. >> thank you good afternoon, commissioners mission resident 3 blocks away from the project working - thank you, commissioners commissioner moore and the
11:03 pm
commissioners that went to visit the site but we were discussing with some of the neighbors opposing we were able to cause the focus group on - basically we are asking is approval of the height and the density and no compromise because you've heard the testimony from the elderly we need affordable housing and remember this is the land education from the luxury condo in the mission district that note all the community agrees a land use case a luxury in the middle of the mission and it was a different land i want to thank the architects because they trying to make what was the best design for the piece of land in
11:04 pm
the middle of nothing i hope you support the project and more importantly i've not been here most of time i'm against something but this is the second time i'm for something we support this we're for for affordable housing for working-class people and seniors in the city this is more important thank you. >> thank you, mr. ramos. >> any additional speakers in support or not seeing none, commissioner melgar. >> it makes me happy to have this project come before us i want to remind us mr. ramer spoke of this this was the parcel on mission street and you
11:05 pm
will remember that was the first time the land dedication around $2.3 million for that and roughly a building about the same size as 8 washington that would be $13 million in the affordable housing fund this project that is now you know maximizing the density to get more units is an appropriate response to correct some of that something that many of us didn't like and it is obvious that we need the neighborhood we need this this the city and i'm grateful for the folks that we were creative and also were does such as outstanding job in meeting with the neighbors and folks may not have liked the height but they engaged and
11:06 pm
really went out of their way to address the design issues and affordability issues and the needs of the community i wholeheartedly support this project. >> commissioner moore. >> i'm touched and moved and inspired by what went on in the last two hours the testimony of those for who this project will be built and for those who spoke in support of them i'm proud of the department i'm proud of the architects and the effort that has produced a building i think it fully portable and move to approve. >> second. >> i think this is great how taller buildings can work it is well-designed and one thing i'll point out shot well, i you know this continues to develop the
11:07 pm
designs make sure that the shot well street frontage is open and pour us it is a relatively quiet block and the housing across the street tends to have it's back to shoot well street so more effort in diligence but i wholeheartedly support this. >> a couple of points first of all, the eastern neighborhoods issue with the board of supervisors on 1515 south van ness i think someone said apples and oranges it is truly the case what of those before the board an 115 south van ness was the gentrification of the mission and here we're actually allowing residents part of mission not having homes to have homes those arguments are different and the lady said she's a nurse hit me
11:08 pm
the health impacts of stress not knowing whether or not you'll have a house to live in or on the street and take medication and find services and eat i couldn't imagine it i think ms. clark has a point about the process i wonder how much time dedicated to get this over the finish line you know part of the process i'm not sure of the cost of the time given the emergency we were but seen before use it opened my eyes it was an abstract to me before senior housing i had people in the building come up to me and say i'm the kind of person i live in my car with any son it became abstract and actually to me i'm not sure it's a worst the additional time i i get it and i wish we donna could
11:09 pm
take on an additional floor the parking someone made a comment about the parking i'm not sure what the rate is but the parking issue will not be a big deal given a lot of the people in the building probably don't own a car i think the height is fine i think the architect did a wonderful job putting that contextually in with the 1515 south van ness that had been coming getting built i'm sure once the department gets back on some of the answers that supervisor campos had i i don't think i've adu use this in support but couldn't go to sleep if i voted no on this project i absolutely find no reason not to support this project. >> commissioner moore i walk

11:28 pm
to executive park is the only one in the southeast part of the san francisco it is has the complete support find every may since mayors to date in 1980 the first office building was opted and other developed and highly can he have is in mid-2008 i received a call from director heinecke the planning director here in the city he asked for - for a meeting mike my land use lawyer and i met with dean he said george san francisco needs housing we are supporting a high density residential development at the park as you're aware in 2011 this planning commission unanimously approved the new residential project as he was unable to develop the property myself i sought a buyer
11:29 pm
to carry the residential development in 2013 we were fortunate to sell to ocean landing ocean has conditioned to working closely with the competitive park advisory committee and seeking and then increase of 85 units our communities need as much housing as possible michael the director for landing has focused on a inquiry quality project you're voting on today he's represented the vision of a world-class low income project that dean and i discussed many years ago in closing i want could express any presentation to john rahaim and matt snider and the many staffing members of the staff of the planning staff for all they're wonderful support during all those years we remain one of
11:30 pm
the only reality with full community support and unanimous votes if the planning commission and the board of supervisors i will now introduce mr. mike burk the land use attorney for the project. >> he'll be okay. if he leans across the table. >> game-changer commissioner president fong and members of the commission i apologize for the necessity of the approach we hope it ended there as the gentleman said on may 2011 the san francisco planning commission unanimously certified the eir approved the sub plan and the design guidelines the board of supervisors did the
11:31 pm
very same thing and i'm delighted it those actions were move forward by the current district supervisor so for the project as was said we're now seeking 309 design approve for the project i can tell you she's support a contention the promissory note prolong in front of fits within the development envelope and complies with the zoning and the design guidelines that were approved in 2011 and seeking one more a conditional use approval that allows us to include an additional 85 units in the project those will includes an additional affordable units with the additional 85 units again fits within the development envelope
11:32 pm
and conforms so the sud and guidelines approved in 2011 as you consider this project please keep in mind this is a challenging site on a slope 5 acres in size in order to develop it in addition to buildings we'll have to provide 3 private streets - 3 pubically assessable streets and 2 pubically assessable alleys and well over 11 thousand square feet of open space and plazas as a project that will be developed with holy union labor i think that is is it fair to say that our construction costs will be the same construction costs for any project anywhere in the city including downtown but combeven the challenges of
11:33 pm
our neighborhood and pioneering the rents or sale values we're likely to achieve for the product are only 60 to 65 perris of who what otherwise might be available in the city nevertheless, because we've chosen to be creative, efficient, and this is important willing to accept a greater economic risk than most other developers we believe that we have been able to provide and will present to you today quality homes for residents, quality environment for the neighborhood and be able to work with the community with the full support of your staff including the lady that put in many long hours tutoring us very
11:34 pm
constructively along the way and with the commission a and as you heard with our district supervisor - another point that is important to keep in mind is that our project began in 2006 and we were told not asked we were told to step aside and wait until the city a figure out whether that and the 49ers could build another project that costs us a tremendous amount of time from 2006 to 2011 to get the legislative approval to move forward we did them and got what you could what a terrible economy it is coming back by legislative that was recommended by the planning commission this
11:35 pm

11:44 pm
is free in san francisco most people pay a lot of money for parking so as far as i'm concerned, i'm very picky my relationship with the owners has been an excellent one i've known george for a long time i intend to stay there until the time comes to demolish which at the present is slated to be around may and i look forward to a lot going on in that community including the crossway that brings in better transportation hoping once the building is west portal they'll have shuttles that will take us to certain hubs be it the light rail which i hope had been stand to balance

what they're willing to do for the commercial tenants because of state law limiting the city's ability to be involved in commercial roll call or relocation issues the conditions i understood malia cohen aid to read that the project sponsor will work with the mayor's office of mayor's office of economic workforce development but the city didn't center approval authority nor can the city require elements for the relocation plan as i understand the condition to confirm with the mayor's office more than a requirement that the project sponsor actually undertake the relocation i think the gentleman may have the specification of
