Mithun’s 1180 Fourth Street was honored with a 2016 AIA Housing Award in the multifamily housing category. The AIA’s Housing Awards program recognizes the best in housing design and promotes the importance of good housing as a necessity of life, a sanctuary for the human spirit and a valuable national resource. In addition to architectural design features, projects in the multifamily housing category were judged based on the integration of the building into its context, including open and recreational space, transportation options and features that contribute to livable communities.
1180 Fourth Street marks a gateway to San Francisco’s Mission Bay neighborhood. Designed in collaboration with Kennerly Architecture and Planning, the project houses 150 low income and formerly homeless households, plus 10,000 square feet of restaurants and retail. 1180 Fourth Street occupies a full city block with a multi-level courtyard accessing tenant services, daycare, community gardens and common spaces. A generous community room serves the larger neighborhood as well as the project. Amenities emphasize fitness, nutrition, education and community life. Developed by Mercy Housing California, the project symbolizes San Francisco’s commitment to integrating dignified homes for the poorest citizens into the heart of the City.
