The first segment of thousands of new homes planned as part of Treasure Island’s massive redevelopment effort broke ground on Friday.

Sixty-five of the 104 new units will be reserved for veterans currently experiencing homelessness, while the remaining units will house formerly homeless veterans. Construction is expected to wrap up in 2022.

The six-story, modular construction building is designed by Mithun and co-developed by the Chinatown Community Development Center and the Bay Area nonprofit Swords to Plowshares, which focuses on supporting veterans with social services including supportive housing and employment . . . .

Maceo May will feature a mix of studios, one-bedroom and two-bedroom units, and include a meal program and common open space that includes a forested “healing garden,” a playground and solar-powered community room.

Following on Maceo May, the next vertical construction will be four market rate rental communities, all of which include inclusionary BMR housing; they are set to break ground next year,” said Treasure Island Community Development spokesperson P.J. Johnston. “Treasure Island is getting closer to its promise of becoming one of the nation’s most socioeconomically diverse neighborhoods” . . . .
