Surplus building to be affordable housing for homeless vets

Neighbors can hear firsthand about a plan provide housing to 76 homeless veterans at the SoMa Leadership Council Wednesday evening.

Representatives from Swords to Plowshares will be at the 6 p.m. meeting at The Arc of San Francisco, 180 11th St., to talk about their collaboration with  the Chinatown Community Development Center. The two organizations want to develop 150 Otis St., a surplus city-owned building, into permanent affordable rental housing for chronically homeless senior citizen vets. The project is scheduled to be completed in 2012.
