Harbor Light Center
San Francisco, CA

Okamoto Saijo Architecture was asked by the Salvation Army to develop a master plan for their Harbor Light Center campus in San Francisco's South-of-Market Area. After analyzing the existing as-built conditions and the proposed building program, it was agreed that future development should occur in three phases:  

New Supportive Services Building
This new building is designed to consolidate most of the supportive services programs into one building on the northeast corner of the site. The structure would be four stories high and have about 27,000 square feet of floor area.

Corps Facility & Site Improvements
This phase would improve the existing structures, including a new outdoor courtyard space located in the center of the site with good sun access. Other improvements would be adding a new Foyer to the Chapel and remodeling the Administation Building.  

New Transitional Housing
The final phase would be to construct a new apartment building containing 42-48 studios. Parking would be on the ground floor with three floor of residential units above.

Estimated Construction Cost: $16.5 Million
