Background Information: Dr. George W. Davis Senior Residence 

It was an over twenty year vision of the late Dr. George W. Davis, Executive Director of Bayview Hunters Point Multipurpose Senior Services (BHPMSS), to build housing and services that would support seniors to age in place in their neighborhood. He never gave up on the dream and his legacy is now a reality with the building of the Dr. George W. Davis Senior Residence and Senior Center.

The $58 million dollar project received funding from the former Redevelopment Agency now known as OCII (Office of Community Infrastructure and Investment) under the Mayors Office of Housing, Low Income Housing Tax Credits with Wells Fargo and CitiBank, State Infill funding and housing subsidy support from HUD through the rebuilding of Alice Griffith. McCormack Baron Salazar is BHPMSS’ development partner, David Baker Architects designed the building with Michael Willis designing the senior center and Nibbi/Baines is the general contractor. The San Francisco Housing Authority maintains the housing site wait list and McCormack Baron Management provides resident management services.
