Hunters View rebuild ready to begin 

A groundbreaking ceremony for the reconstruction of the Hunters View public housing site is scheduled for 9:30 a.m. Wednesday.

Under Hope SF — an innovative city program that will use federal, state and local funds — market rate condos and apartments were included in Hunters View rebuilding plans to help pay for the reconstruction of 267 dilapidated public housing units.

Mayor Gavin Newsom, Supervisor Sophie Maxwell, a representative of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, and residents and neighbors are expected to attend the groundbreaking ceremony.

The ceremony is planned to help kick-start the demolition of 113 Hunters View units.

There are 137 families that live at Hunters View, and some of them were relocated recently into new units to allow demolition of existing units to proceed in phases, according to Doug Shoemaker, director of the Mayor’s Office of Housing.

The families will move into new public housing units once the homes are ready, which will allow the remainder of the outdated units to be demolished and replaced.
