Filling in Taylor Street. The Business Times reports today that the Tenderloin Neighborhood Development Corp. is taking on another fairly high-profile low-income housing project, having acquired the 22,000-square foot surface parking lot at the corner of Taylor and Eddy Streets. The TNDC plans to build a project very much in the mold of their project currently under construction at 125 Mason, one block away from the Taylor/Eddy site — that is, housing specifically designed to accommodate the Tenderloin’s high concentration of families. The building, which will include a play area for children, is planned to be roughly the same size as 125 Mason, with 130 units on 13 floors. The plan also includes a grocery store on the ground level to provide the neighborhood with immediate access to fresh food. The project will be designed by David Baker + Partners, who also designed the nearby Curran House.
