Polk Gulch gets housing boost


New housing is going up in Polk Gulch, one of San Francisco's most culturally, racially, and economically diverse neighborhoods. The project comes from nonprofit housing developers and will fill a once-desolate lot at Polk and Geary (I have distant memories from the mid-1990s of a laundromat with a parking lot...it shut down and was ugly and empty since then). Developments like this one bolster the findings of a new analysis (reported in today's Chronicle) by New York University's Furman Center for Real Estate and Urban Policy, which found that inclusionary zoning policies did not slow housing production in the Bay Area.
