San Francisco — University of California, San Francisco, and University of California, Hastings College of the Law, have signed a letter of intent to build and rehabilitate approximately 1,200 student housing units near the Hastings campus.
Under the deal, detailed by the San Francisco Chronicle, the schools would build a new housing complex at 198 McAllister St., the current site of Snodgrass Hall, which would be demolished.
Preliminary plans call for the new building to wrap around the corner onto a 1950s-era annex to Snodgrass Hall. This could yield nearly 1,000 units of housing for students. The schools are also considering a renovation of a 252-unit building on McAllister Street known as McAllister Tower.
UCSF recently purchased parcels on Minnesota Street in the Dogpatch neighborhood to potentially build approximately 1,000 additional units.
