4:18 am
scoff at the sight of new luxury apartment buildings going up... bothered by the fact that most san fraciscan's are priced-out of living in one of these new developments... unaware of the city's inclusionary housing ordinance.kate hartley/mohcd - "the inclusionary housing program definitely makes a big difference." based on the law... developers of all new housing projects with 10-units or more... are required to either, one, make 19-percent of the development affordable housing... two, build an equal amount of affordable units at an off- site location... or, three, pay an in lieu fee... a fee that the san francisco mayor's office of housing and community development collects and then invests in affordable housing.kate hartley/mohcd - "we have had an inclusionary program since 2002." and, in the past decade.. kate hartley... director of the mayor's office of housing and community development... says san francisco has collected about 198-million dollars in inclusionary housing fees. that comes out to about 20-million
4:19 am
dollars a year. when leveraged with low-income housing federal tax credits... state and other local funding... hartley says the inclusionary fees make a big difference.kate hartley/mohcd - "it is actually being spent. we have built over the last 10 years, using inclusionary fees, about 2,000 units. and, uh, we have many more, uh, units, hundreds of units in the pipeline right now." we caught up with kate hartley at the openhouse community at 55 laguna street. san francisco's first 100- percent affordable housing complex for l-g-b-t seniors. built in part with inclusionary housing fees.kate hartley/mohcd - "typically, the city provides about, between 40 and 60 of the cost to build housing." as i mentioned... developers have a choice of either making a porition of new buildings affordable... pay a fee or build affordable units off-site... meaning on a piece of land somewhere else... an option, hartley says,
4:20 am
developers rarely use. but there are examples of off-site construction... like this building at 14-hundred mission street. it's made up of 167 below-market-rate condos and 24 middle-income rental units. all built here, rather than at the main development: lumina at 201 folsom street. a 655-unit luxury high rise built in 20- 15.kate hartley/mohcd - "and, uh, it doesn't happen too often, because as you can imagine, thats a somewhat difficult process to find a piece of land, entitle it and build. um, but we have had about four or so off-site developments." several cities across the nation and right here in the bay area have inclusionary housing programs... san jose is also one of them... and expects to collect 20 to 25 million dollars in fees annually... that'll be invested into 100-percent affordable housing.kate hartley/mohcd - "san francisco's is not the, um,
4:21 am
most strict program in the country, but we definitely, uh, have been out in front on this issue." annually, hartley says the city's goal is to create 5-thousand housing units. 15-hundred of them affordable. creating mixed-communities in new developments... blending low, medium and high income households together in san francisco, philippe djegal, kron four news.
