City Officials, TNDC Break Ground On Taylor Family Apartments
Mayor Edwin Lee, Supervisor Jane Kim, Tenderloin Neighborhood Development Corporation (TNDC) CEO Don Falk, and several community members took part in the ceremonial groundbreaking for the Taylor Family Apartments (Eddy and Taylor Street) which will bring 113 units to house families, some of whom will have been formerly homeless.
In the press conference, Mayor Lee discussed the number of agencies (at least 6) that helped bring the longstanding planning for the project to fruition.

“The project at Eddy and Taylor streets, which will house hundreds of people, 30 percent of whom will be coming out of homelessness, exemplifies the challenges of developing affordable housing in San Francisco today, and how they can be overcome,” said Donald Falk, the Chief Executive Officer at TNDC. “Originally conceived 10 years ago, its successful groundbreaking represents the power of perseverance and the importance of affordable housing in this most expensive of areas—and the coming together of an entire community, including not only the City but also, ultimately, the State, to plan and fund it. TNDC is proud to play a central role in a community-wide effort.”
