team 4 | mission Shu Pan, Caroline Schoeller, Maria Suescun, Lucas Zarzoso Our group looked at the Mission district and asked ourselves how we can address the housing issue while still keeping the culture and values of the Mission in place. To address the immediate housing issue, we propose large, concentrated development around the BART stations. These mixeduse developments take advantage of the transit rich areas and provide needed affordable housing in a location that is faced with the constant threat of gentrification. In addition, we propose additional dwelling units or “ADUs� throughout the area as small incremental interventions that create more living and working areas while still keeping the low-lying shape of Mission intact. The low elevation of Mission Street is crucial in maintaining its vibrant street community. To keep and enhance the street atmosphere, El Capitan, an underutilized parking lot centrally located, will become a new market where both the local and neighboring communities can come together. Finally, the Mission is victim to an imaginary boarder which separates the Hispanic community from the white community. A bike sharing system and greenways running from Mission Street to Dolores Park will hopefully cut through the boarder running between Valencia and Mission Street.
