From Bus Yard to Housing

A decades-old plan to convert a bus yard into a housing project has gained new momentum in San Francisco.

"For decades, the cash-strapped San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency, which operates Muni, has talked about selling off Kirkland Yard, a 60-year-old bus facility located on Beach Street between Powell and Stockton streets.

As part of an interagency deal, the Mayor's Office of Housing would help procure the land and, with the backing of a private developer, the SFMTA would receive $35 million during the next 20 years."

The proposed new development would add 220 housing units, 20% of which would be set aside as affordable housing.
