This is What Haight’s Old McDonald’s Will Look Like
Thanks to SFist for the tip-off that San Francisco’s former McDonald’s on Haight Street, located at 730 Stanyan, will be an 8-story mixed-use building with affordable housing. The site has sat vacant and has been used for temporary activities intended to serve the community.
The current design for the building features 160 rental units with a mix of bedroom sizes. The apartments will be affordable to low- and moderate-income households as well as units for families who have experienced homelessness. There will be 50 units set aside as permanent supportive housing, including 30 units for transitional-age youths (TAY) who are typically exiting the foster care system; and 20 units for adults and families previously experiencing homelessness.
Ground floor uses include a childcare center, a proposed senior center and TAY drop-in support center, tech training space, and low-cost restaurant or café.
The site fronts the historical commercial Haight Street and the residential Waller Street, while located at the entry to Golden Gate Park on Stanyan Street.
