3
ASiAN, Inc. Profile
  • Non-profit organization founded in 1971
  • Providing affordable housing for low-income
    families.
  • Assisting Asian Americans businesses to thrive in
    their communities.
  • Promote new social and economic programs to
    strengthen disadvantaged communities.

4
ASiAN, Inc. Goals
  • Expand the supply of rental and ownership housing
    affordable to family households with diverse
    incomes.
  • Create critical densities in small businesses and
    housing that mutually benefit and support each
    other.
  • Increase the number of small businesses that
    create jobs for low and moderate income
    residents.
  • Create and improve services and businesses in the
    area that will meet the needs of the neighborhood
    residents.

5
Project Objectives
  • Increase potential housing units in the Sunset
    Neighborhood specifically within two transit
    friendly corridors Taraval and Noriega Street.
  • Reclassifying areas of lower density into higher
    density development in terms of housing above
    retail.

6
Research Approach
  • Literature Review
  • Develop an analytical template of development
    potentials in the two transit corridors.
  • Conduct a land use survey along two transit
    corridors Taraval and Noriega Streets.
  • Locate underutilized properties
  • Data collection using San Francisco Tax
    Assessors office website
  • Calculate the possible number of potential
    housing units above retail
  • Produce geocoded GIS maps
  • Produce simulated photographs

7
Definition
  • Mixed-Use Zoning that allows for a range of land
    uses in one area, rather then segregated,
    single-use zoning.
  • Example Buildings with retail space at street
    level and apartments above.
  • Infill Development in existing communities that
    utilizes existing infrastructure rather than
    building on previously undeveloped land.

8
Definition
  • NC Neighborhood Commercial District
    Classification

9
NC-1 Characteristics
  • Serve local neighborhood shopping districts.
  • Located in residential neighborhoods, often in
    outlying areas of the City.
  • Lowest intensity of commercial development,
    generally consisting of small clusters.
  • Commercial uses that will impact residential
    livability are prohibited.
  • Building controls promote low-intensity
    development that is compatible with existing
    scale of the neighborhood.

NC-1 Example

11
NC-2 Characteristics
  • Linear shopping streets .
  • Located along thoroughfares and transit
    corridors.
  • Blocks range in size commercial development in
    longer districts may be interspersed with housing
    or other land uses.
  • New commercial development are permitted at
    ground and second story. Neighborhood serving
    businesses are strongly encouraged.
  • Provide mixed-use buildings which approximate or
    slightly exceed the development pattern.

13
NC-3 Characteristics
  • Provides a variety of comparison and specialty
    goods and services to a greater population than
    the immediate neighborhood.
  • Located along heavily trafficked thoroughfares
    and transit corridors.
  • Large-scale lots, buildings, and wide streets
    distinguish the districts from smaller scaled
    commercial districts.
  • Building standards permit large commercial uses
    and buildings.

15
Findings
  • Both Noriega and Taraval have a high density of
    NC-2 located between 19th Ave. 35th Ave.
  • Parcels zoned for NC-2 enables for highest
    potential in accommodating residential units
    above retail.

Findings
  • The parking space ratio is currently 11
  • Retail square footage TBD sq. ft. is based
    upon the number of parking spaces occupying the
    first level.
  • If parking space where reduced to a higher ratio
    there will be a gain in the sq. ft. of retail
    space.

28
Potential Issues
  • Parking Regulations
  • Residence and Business Displacement or Relocation
  • High Cost of Production
  • Community Acceptance

29
Recommendations
  • Generate support for new housing by adopting
    Specific Area Plan, citywide programs, and
    specialized zoning for Western Neighborhood
    Transit Corridors Taraval, Noriega Street.
  • Encourage San Francisco Zoning to rethink parking
    requirements in areas well served by transit.
  • Promote Smart-Growth planning around stations
    MTCs Housing Incentive Production (HIP) and
    Transportation Livable Communities (TLC)
    initiatives.

30
Recommendations
  • Locate developers that have method (or plan) for
    residence and business displacement or
    relocation.
  • Encourage Department of Public Works in
    development of new standards for sidewalk
    width, street trees, and street lighting
    transforming Taraval and Noriega Streets into
    more pedestrian friendly.
  • Establish Community-Based Organizations (CBOs)
    and intermediaries which plays important roles in
    efforts by facilitating discussion and helping
    resolve conflicts between existing residents and
    those who want to reinvest in older
    neighborhoods.
