How a 1,000-unit ‘academic village’ could transform S.F.’s Tenderloin
UC College of the Law San Francisco’s Academe at 198, a 14-story, 656-unit student housing complex at 198 McAllister St., undergoes construction. It is part of a multiphase, multi-institution student-housing project to create an “academic village.”
The new residential building will bring positive activity to the street, according to UC Law SF leaders. It includes 8,000 square feet of retail and 50,000 square feet of academic space, including classrooms, a 400-seat auditorium, and trial and appellate courtrooms for the school.
