Yerba Buena Commons is a low-income housing building comprised entirely of studio apartments located in the SOMA area of San Francisco. We have a total of 257 studio apartments in the building. Every studio has a general living area as well as its own private kitchen and bathroom. All studios have electric stoves, built-in heaters, and a window that opens to the outdoors. We also provide each studio with a microwave and refrigerator. Studios are wired and ready to go with connections for internet, phone and cable tv. Power and water utilities are included in the affordable monthly rent at no extra cost to tenants. The common areas of the building include several laundry rooms, a gym, a business center, a rooftop patio and outside courtyard. Our studios are leased on a flexible month-to-month basis which gives you the freedom to make your stay here as long or short as you’d like. The building is in a great location close to public transit, grocery stores, retail shopping, dining, entertainment and more.

Yerba Buena Commons is funded in part by a federally regulated government program called the Low Income Housing Tax Credit program. This government program along with other sources used to build the property require management to screen all applicants carefully. All potential residents must qualify based on projected annual income (including assets), household size, background check, credit report and rental history. The LIHTC program also has guidelines for

households containing full-time students. These screening and verification processes are used consistently and uniformly for every applicant who applies for an apartment at Yerba Buena Commons.
