The South San Francisco City Council have approved a new 480 unit housing development to replace office and warehousing which is expected to bring in 2.5 million yearly, plus the $11.7 million in impact fees, a substantial increase in what taxes are currently paid. This development includes a 7-story residential building with 294 apartments on a 2.56 acre site at 124 Airport Boulevard and a 7-story residential building with 186 apartments on a 1.56-acre site at 100 Produce Avenue.The development will also include 560 spaces.

The development will feature 15% below market rate units which would translate to approximately $2,900 for a family of two who might qualify. The development will also include 560 parking spaces.

Just got a letter that this company flat out refused to negotiate with San Mateo County Building Trades and refused to use union labor.

“Despite opposition from several of the city’s residents and also labor leaders, including Ed Evans Business Manager of Carpenters LU 217 and IBEW LU 617 Business Manager and SSF native Dave Mauro, the council voted 4-1 in support of the use of non-union construction, with Councilman James Coleman the lone opposing vote. The difference in the estimated cost for the approved project versus the proposed labor contract was minimal.

This project would have provided wages and benefits to not only local residents and our local workforce and their families in the construction trades, but to union construction workers in San Mateo County and beyond. It is crucial we ensure local hiring and workers who are earning a wage that prevails in the area, rather than companies bringing in low wage out of state workers. These jobs are also vital to stimulating our local economy coming out of the worst global pandemic in recent history.”

Promise yourself not to vote for more building if they decide they want you to pay for it.

Raise your hand if this is the first you heard of it. Thought so. South San Francisco city governance at its best. The city belongs to a handful of elected and salaried officials and don’t forget the developers. And you thought it belonged to the residents. Go figure.
