Edward II Project
The Edward II project, a collaboration between Larkin Street Youth Services and Community Housing Partnership, will provide youth ages 18 to 24 with 24 units of safe, clean and affordable housing at a site in San Francisco’s Marina/Cow Hollow Districts, formerly known as the Edward II Hotel. In addition to housing, services for the young people will be provided both on this site as well as through Larkin Street’s existing education and employment programs.
Where the Edward II project stands now is this:
Community Housing Partnership has successfully secured all of the needed funding for the building rehabilitation. They estimate that the building permits will be finalized by the Fall of 2013, at which time they will start construction. CHP anticipates a 12-month construction schedule with completion in September/October 2014.
The really great news is that this means the move-in date for our young people will be in the first quarter of 2015 if all goes according to plan.
It’s important to note that the 24 units of safe, clean and affordable housing that our youth will be occupying will ultimately be part of the City’s plans to create 400 units of Transition Age Youth housing throughout San Francisco, with the goal of getting our young people off the streets and poised for success. We are deeply grateful to all of the Larkin Street supporters who have and will continue to play a role in achieving this goal.
