San Francisco has always been an attractive place to be. As San Francisco began to recover from the Great Recession, real estate values and rents increased in a way not seen in recent memory. Neighborhoods were beginning to change and improve and attract a new population.
The City is growing... but what made it attractive in the first place and what makes San Francisco special, what makes it a place? Many things do, but one thing for sure holds the City's fabric together: community organizations and nonprofits. Whether it is arts, youth or senior programs, or even critical safety net social service organizations, community organizations and nonprofits serve a vital function in San Francisco. Within a repopulating City with appreciating real estate, how do we ensure that important programs can stay in San Francisco to serve the new and existing San Franciscans?
Come hear how the best practices on this issue and innovative/novel approaches are being deployed in a PDR District in this case study of the 1850 Bryant Street Social Innovation Center/Hub Project.
Thor's more notable projects were the Hunters Point Shipyard/Candlestick Point for the former San Francisco Redevelopment Agency, now the Office of Community Investment and Infrastructure or OCII, his work with City of New York at the Mayor's Office in their Operations Office, Budget Office, Office of Emergency Management during the 9-11 disaster and lastly at Homeless Services as a senior development manager overseeing the development of transitional housing and other transitional institutional facilities.
