North Ping Yuen

838 Pacific Ave, San Francisco, California 94133

This 12 story, 200 unit building features some of the only family units in Chinatown. The building will be made more structurally sound, units and interior/exterior community spaces will get makeovers, building and security systems will be upgraded, and new/additional management and resident services offices will be created to accommodate more comprehensive property staffing. In addition to the physical improvements, Chinatown CDC will bring a heavy focus on resident services, connecting residents to each other, to the larger community, and to those services that can help these families thrive.
