New Future for Bridge Motel?

The Bridge Motel is not one of San Francisco’s hottest properties. Long known for crime, drugs, and other issues, it has been the problem child of city residential real estate. San Francisco sued in 2009. The city went back to court in 2011. SF Weekly’s article on it seven years ago was titled “Motel Hell.” Now the troubled residential hotel, located at 2524 Lombard Street, might have a new future as supportive housing for the homeless. Gail Gilman, CEO of the nonprofit developer Community Housing Partnership (CHP), confirmed to the Marina Times that the group is interested in purchasing the site and replacing the Bridge with up to 100 units of supportive housing, however, they are only in the due diligence phase and the deal is nowhere near being finalized.
