Thirty-two formerly homeless people will be moving into a newly completed apartment complex in South of Market over the holidays, and by early next year the Rene Cazenave Apartments will house 120 formerly homeless people, according to the Community Housing Partnership.

“The Rene Cazenave Apartments is more than just a home for these individuals; it is a state–of-the-art building designed to specifically address the needs of the population through various amenities, easily accessible services, green rooftops and more,” said Michael Chao of the Community Housing Partnership, which was behind the project.

Located in the Transbay Redevelopment Neighborhood, the project is an eight-story building with “a wide range of programming space, a private courtyard and two retail spaces,” according to the housing partnership.

All tenants will be referred by the Department of Public Health.

The apartments, named after housing partnership co-founder Rene Cazenave, are located on Essex Street between Folsom and Townsend streets.Bay Area NewsCommunity Housing PartnershipdevelopmentPlanningRene Cazenave ApartmentsSan Francisco homeless
