SHIRLEY CHISHOLM EDUCATOR HOUSING
SAN FRANCISCO, CA
Named after the first black woman elected to US Congress, the Shirley Chisholm Village will bring 135 units of affordable educator housing to the Sunset District of San Francisco. The MidPen Housing project’s extensive community engagement process ensured shared outdoor and indoor spaces for neighboring community use as well as underground parking to reduce street congestion. This all-electric project designed by BAR Architects takes advantage of solar panels and high efficiency heat pump technology to lower utility costs and carbon emissions. UDCE’s work encompasses dry utilities/ joint trench coordination and composite design of electrical, telephone and cable television vaults and systems in the streets and sidewalk.
