About Maceo May Apartments:

Maceo May is a modular, all-electric affordable residential development being developed in San Francisco. Climate-responsive design contributes economic value for Maceo May’s owners and delivers a stable, healthy living environment for its residents, who are formerly homeless veterans and their families. Developed by two nonprofits, Chinatown Community Development Center and Swords to Plowshares, Maceo May will be the second all-electric affordable building in San Francisco. The $55 million development will be six stories tall with 105 units—24 studios, and 47 one-bedroom and 34 two-bedroom units—when construction is completed in 2022. The development is designed to be protected from sea level rise and to continue operations and remain safe and comfortable during periods of extreme heat, power outages, wildfire smoke, and seismic events.
