MULTIFAMILY HOUSING Bill Sorro Community ARCHITECT: KENNERLY ARCHITECTURE & PLANNING LOCATION: SAN FRANCISCO PROJECT SIZE: 67 UNITS The Bill Sorro Community reanimates a tough abandoned corner in San Francisco's Sixth Street Lodginghouse Historic District with 67 apartments for low-income families and developmentally disabled adults, and restaurant and retail spaces. The project in- volved partnerships with the community to reflect on the historic and unique qualities of the neighborhood, and the mission of Bill Sorro, a revered community leader. The building's design resonates with the neighborhood's distinctive character, enhances its vibrant mix of uses, and preserves affordability. With a GreenPoint Rating of 127 points, the building provides energy efficiency, air quality, stormwater management, and greywater reuse. These sustainability strategies were integral in the design goal to provide a healthier environment to live and work, and to reduce ongoing costs to make funds available for other uses. Residential amenities include private balconies, a roof garden, laundry rooms, day-lit corridors, an indoor bike room, landscaped courtyard, and flexible spaces for offices, exercise, and gatherings. —Kennerly Architecture & Planning ADDITIONAL CREDITS GENERAL CONTRACTOR: James E.
