8:03 am
area discussion and action. resolution number 1-2019. madam director. >> thank you madam secretary and through the chair, approval of a basic schematic design. and you have reviewed this item in the last two years and taken various actions. first was to select a co-developer that is bridge and community housing partnership and after that you also approved the predevelopment loan and the exclusive negotiation agreement that was before you early last year. and this is the next step. there will be other approval paths, so with that, and we are kind of excited about this project as well because it's 141 units for formerly homeless individuals, which is a big deal and to have an entire building housed homeless individuals is pretty i am -- impressive.
8:04 am
i'll turn it over to kim. >> i'm development specialist with ocii affordable housing team. i'm here this afternoon to present on item 5a, conditionally approving the basic concept and schematic design for mission bay south block nine and the mission bay south project area. block nine is a 141 unit affordable housing development with supportive services that will house formerly homeless households. block nine is adjacent to the public safety building between mission rock street to the north, and china basin street to the south. design for block nine also includes the extension of bridge view way, between block 9 and 9a. it's well served by transit, including the muni metro line along 3rd street and the 55 bus,
8:05 am
walking distance to many amenities, grocery stores, pharmacy, parks and open spaces. before i go into detail regarding the design, a brief background on the project area. in 1998, redevelopment agency commission approved the mission bay north and south redevelopment plans and owner participation agreements or o.p.a.s. they allow for the development of up to 6,514 residential units in mission bay with nearly 30% of that total set aside as affordable housing units. in mission bay south, 493 affordable units constructed and another 725 are planned or under construction. the o.p.a. requires the master developer submit development plans in major phases. including block nine in the approval request for blocks 8,
8:06 am
9, 9a and 10a, and p19 and p20. block 9 confirmed as affordable housing site. and now provide some background on the activities leading up to the request before you today. in april 2017, staff released a request for proposal or rfp, seeking a team to develop, own and operate housing on block 9. june 2017, addendum to the r.f.p. to provide information on scenarios, based on discussions with the mayor's office how city agent kiss can complete housing for homeless persons as efficiently as possible. a team led by bridge housing and community housing partnership or c.h.p. approved by the commission. commission later approved a negotiations agreement and predevelopment loan for the project.
8:07 am
a portion of the predevelopment loan set aside to be applied to up front fees and deposits for modular construction. following the selection of a unit manufacturer and the approval of the design. team intends to issue an r.f.p. for the modular scope of work in february. in addition to bridge and c.h.p., the development team includes leddy madeham stacy architects, health right 316, and monica wilson and leblanc and associates as work force consultants. the block 9 project consists of 141 total units. 140 are affordable furnished units when one is a manager's unit. affordable units will serve formerly homeless adults referred to the project by the department of homelessness and supportive housing through the coordinated entry system. building amenities include a large ground level courtyard, a
8:08 am
community room with kitchen, resident lounge and game room, a services suite and bicycle parking. the project also includes a community garden that will be open to the public and managed in collaboration with a local non-profit. and with that, i had go ahead and turn the presentation over to the architects to talk through the proposed design. >> good afternoon, commissioners. my colleague and i will give you a brief presentation of the architectural design. and we want to start with the concept diagram of the design. i think it speaks to the two main goals of this development. two of the main goals, creating community and reflecting mission bay character. shows the site is between two streets and the public safety
8:09 am
building and the new bridge view way. it embraces a central courtyard along bridge view way, while masking the blank side of the public safety building. each wing is visually divided into row house like forms for incremental urban character. at the ground floor, support the upper residential floors along store front windows at the pedestrian level. upper floor residential windows on the row house forms, allow, orient views toward the bay. finishes are used for key locations such as entrances and along bridge view way. the building exterior color palette responds to either the street scape or the landscape courtyard. the ground floor plan
8:10 am
illustrates the key community building idea that organizes the ground floor. the generous hallway connects the china basin street main entrance with the central elevators and all the community enhancing functions. the goal is to create a connection with residents daily with the community room, laundry, lounge, game room, supportive services and property management. at the same time, the main hallway and the community spaces look out on to the beautiful landscaped courtyard. in addition, a gap between our building and the public safety building allows space for a shade garden that provides light and views to the west. at the ends of the two street wings are a group of studio apartments and a manager's apartment activating those areas. utility rooms and parking along mission rock street facing the
8:11 am
future giants parking garage. the plan is the typical upper floors shows very efficient layout constructed with the factory-built modules. modular standard studio apartments make up the two wings along the streets while the middle wing contains larger studio-plus apartments on either side of the stair core. the hallways are the size for wheelchair users and large windows for lighted views at the end and along the shade garden. apartment entrances are grouped together to encourage neighborliness. these plans show the two basic unit types. standard studio plan is a very efficient, while providing a small kitchen and private bath. the studio plus plan on the left has an extended length for more areas for residents requiring
8:12 am
personal caregivers or special medical equipment. >> 3d view looking down the street from china basin looking out towards the bay. closest to you with the brown colors, that is the main -- >> yes. >> can you hear this better? so you'll see that the main entry are the two bays closest on the left in this image, and that is highlighting the main entry. those are some special finishes to really come out and be closest to the areas where the most people will be approaching. this view is really taken from across the street from where the madron apartment entry is, you can see the building is set back from the sidewalk, a landscape buffer there that allows for some landscaping buffer as well as space for stairs and ramps to mitigate the future settlement of the streets and sidewalks in the area.
8:13 am
also see the ground floor is raised, that is also to help mitigate against future sea level rise. this view here is a view looking back up china basin, bridge view way cutting to the right of the slide, the elevation that addresses bridge view way with special finishes to accent the public facing part of the building. and you'll see the bays at the upper floors, a bay at the upper unit and a window that features the bay view for each unit. here is the central courtyard view. you can see here that in the center of the courtyard we have the architectural form where you can look out on to the courtyard. also see a series of store
8:14 am
fronts that really connects the heart of the building, the public spaces to the courtyard. one thing that i didn't mention on the previous slide is that we have store front along the ground floor all along the street frontage to maintain and activate a street front. on the exterior materials, we have a combination of really economical finishes and special finishes and the economic finishes category, we have the fiber cement lap siding, the gray color and some accent panels that are painted fiber cement panels. then in the special finishes as i mentioned earlier, we have the finishes that we are using around main entrance in the elevations facing bridge view way. those are composite wood panels, bringing some warmth into the areas where there is most ped contact. we also have the bays clad in
8:15 am
metal and perforated metal sun shades on the south-facing elevations. and as well as we have a weathered feel component that is used around the base of the building, it's picking up material, that same material is being used in the landscape materials is being brought into the building also where it's adjacent to the landscape down there at the ground floor. the landscape design is by t.s. studios, and they are here today if you have any questions after the presentation. this design is really a park-like design that's designed to evoke the tidal marshes of the area. cut down into the landscape and then bridges across the swales to connect the pedestrian paths.
8:16 am
the main residential courtyard just for the tenants, and in the foreground is bridge view way and in between, the between space, community garden i'll talk more about in the next slide. and one other thing that's special, it's all on grade, so it's an opportunity to have a large amount of trees planted here, which is often unusual in multi-family. so, here is the ground floor landscape plan, highlighted in red is the fencing. so the courtyard once again, it is the main residential courtyard, the only entries into the courtyard are through the building. it is only for the building residents. it's a connection of multiple different pathways, as well as different gathering spaces and seating areas. you'll see there is also a community terrace that's connected to the community room where there is some sliding doors so it can create an
8:17 am
indoor/outdoor space. the community garden in the middle of the slide is a space that can only be accessed off of bridge view way. there's a gate into the space, and it's for the entire neighborhood. and then the third space is bridge view way, a public pedestrian pathway and emergency vehicle access lane and removable bollards there. and the fence is eight feet tall, keeping people out of the residential courtyard. the fence between bridge view way and the community garden, a four foot fence, partitioning that area off. that area is meant for gardening for the local neighborhood and will likely be run by a local non-profit. >> staff recommends the
8:18 am
schematic design be approved sub j ekt to the conditions listed in the memorandum to the item and attached to the authorizing resolution. conditions are standard ensuring that ocii will review as it's further refined. include the material and colors, courtyard fencing and gates, trash and recycling, screening, and landscape plans, bicycle parking. and architectural mock-up in later stages of the project. developers have worked with the compliance team to address ocii goals. the team will issue additional requests for proposals for professional services contracts in the coming months with the intent of award being as many contracts to meet or exceed goals. cahill has agreed to be the general contractor and work, including concrete and framing.
8:19 am
so the extent possible, they will pursue agreements with local partners to participate in work-related to the modular portions of the building. the sponsors are sensitive to community skerns about block 9 and have reached out through the mission bay citizens advisory committee, public tours of similar projects, group meetings, individual correspondents and meetings with nearby organizations. the team will continue to reach out as they finalize design. with your approval today, the team will proceed with refining the design, pursue building permits and submit financing applications. we will request approval for a gap loan and ground lease in anticipation of a construction start in early 2020. that concludes our presentation. i would like to introduce a few members of the development team that are here in the audience today.
8:20 am
from bridge housing, ali stein. and cynthia luzod. from c.h.p., daniel potter, serena kalway, and cheyenne. and you met richard and vanna, and from cahill, we have matt ir within. from t.s. studios, we have lee stickels, the landscape architect, and monica wilson from community and real estate development and we thank you and are happy to answer any questions that you might have. >> thank you. madam secretary, do we have any speaker cards? >> yes, we do. ace washington. >> happy new year commissioners, staff, audience, and participants in this great
8:21 am
presentation. my name is ace, i'm on the case. to start off with it, you are going to approve it, so, nothing more for me to say on that, other than my own opinion. and statements. particularly to, what is this agency, housing -- excuse me -- bridge, ok. and it's not -- i'm not here to criticize, i'm simply here just to analyze some of the lies. y'all may not know it, young, but bridge, you talk about the homeless for whom sure nobody look like me. case in point, y'all have nothing today but go back to the c.e.o.s, pull up the record ace after getting out the hospital, surgery in my head. at my worker, i was due for
8:22 am
housing through bridge. qualified, black man disabled, coming out the hospital. and miss davis over there, who knows me quite well in that development, oh, which the way, y'all in partnership with the san francisco housing development corporation, rewind the tapes, i'm a historian. but what happened to me denied me housing. everything was set. until they found out that it was ace getting ready to come in your -- oh, we don't want that. i would never forget, but i knew it was going to come back around, it's not y'all fault but you tell your c.a.o. or whoever, whenever bridge come up, wherever, you have to prove to me, a.-c.-e. and my stamp of approval dealing with the black community. what i'm talking about, give honor to governor newsom, he's
8:23 am
gruesome, and i know him, patriotic. talking about blacks but i'm patriotic. you go back and tell him. a new one out here. i don't have time. but every time until you rectify that and let me know that you deal with black folks in your housing, if you get funding, i want added, i want to find out what you are doing to repair everything, bridge, coming out there betrayal hill with rad, my name is ace, i'm on the case. rad then comes black folks are going to be sad, everybody is coming to take our pad. listen, i'm here, my name is ace and i'm on this case, oh bridge, we are going to talk. >> thank you, mr. washington. ace. >> no more speaker cards. >> no more speaker cards. i will now close public comment
8:24 am
and turn to my fellow commissioners for comments and questions. yes, commissioner rosales. >> commissioner rosales: thank you, i was interested in hearing a little bit more if we are able to on the modular construction piece. i think this is going to be the first one of our projects we have embarked on modular construction. >> that's true. the first ocii project but a couple of affordable housing developments the mayor's office of housing and community development is sponsoring ahead of us in the process. so, a project at 1064-1068 mission street, the federal parking lot and also a project on treasure island pursuing this construction type. >> commissioner rosales: so perhaps someone could walk me or us through like how, what is the
8:25 am
procedure? competitive process, yes, i'm hearing and seeing -- >> i can start, and then folks from the team can jump in to fill in any holes. so yes, there are several modular unit manufacturers that are qualified to do this type of work and have a great deal of experience. so, when we go out in february, the architects have prepared a bid set that specify the plans and it's been designed to be ready for modular. we would issue a request for proposals and the r.f.p. process would be overseen by ocii compliance team like the regular pro curement process and we would receive bids back from any qualified modular developers and kind of work that through. they would be a subconsultant to cahill, so some say in that process and make sure those folks are qualified, strong balance sheets and track records performing on the projects.
8:26 am
>> any l.b.e. or s.b.e. in the field? >> there are not. this is one firm a little more local than the others, so this is becoming something that's more regional and i know the city has undertaken efforts to do a study to look at the possibility of a manufacturing plant to san francisco. i'm not sure what the status is, but there is nothing here in san francisco yet. >> ok. thank you. >> commissioner singh. >> commissioner singh: the same question. when you say modular constructions, and is it factory-built? >> that's right. modular themselves constructed off site manufacturing facility, all four walls of the unit, wood frame construction like here, and complying with local building codes just like they would be here. and they are trucked from the
8:27 am
manufacturing facility and craned into place and connected to the site to all the utilities, plumbing, the wiring, and then the exterior facade is constructed on-site just like for any project. >> where is going to be built, in san francisco or somewhere else? >> it's not going to be in san francisco, unfortunately, there are no manufacturing facilities in san francisco that do this work. put out a request for proposals but there are facilities, one in valejo, a couple others in california, idaho, so, we may have to reach a little further on this one because this is so new. >> commissioner singh: ok, thank you. >> commissioner bustos. >> vice chair bustos: hello, ok. so, but on that note, you know, one of the things that should be known and the staff knows is we have been really trying hard to make sure that san francisco builds san francisco.
8:28 am
and you know, fact this is former redevelopment land, 100% san francisco, we were really pushing to have long time san francisco build the city. so, i understand if we don't have a facility that builds modular units here, but i definitely am going to challenge that we look to see which other ways, right, so, to cahill, and others, you know, when you go out and look for professional services, you know, we want san franciscans, businesses here a long time and cahill, you are san francisco-based company, i think you can appreciate the fabt that we, you know, we actually will ask staff to give us bios of the companies that you'll have subcontracts with, and this is for everybody, including the architects,
8:29 am
because we want, you know, it's the right thing to do. so, i mean -- >> yeah, and cahill is committed to this with ocii and the rest of the partners, and we are exploring all the different avenues, where we could integrate s.b.e., local contractors and hiring into the modular process, whether it's the on-site security, transportation, things like that. so, we are certainly exploring these options and we do believe it's really, really important and cahill has demonstrated that over the course of our history here. in terms of the commitment to the community and what it means to hire locally, both businesses as well as the on-site labor. >> sure. and you know, a lot of companies that moved in like a year or two ago that will be bidding for this and competing against companies that have been here maybe decades. i know monica and i have had conversations about this, it's just the right thing to do. so i appreciate your efforts in
8:30 am
advance. so -- so i have an issue with the design. i know i'm not an architect, so please excuse my ignorance. but some years ago we talked about the wow factor and just because you may be poor or homeless does not mean you shouldn't have a wow factor. i understand we are dealing with some constraints the fact that it is modular and dealing with issues the fact this is, you know, we have these small studios. but when i was looking at the design, the first thing i thought, i was like well, this kind of -- some ways looks like an institution. i'm not talking about the inside, i know we are constrained by that. but i think we can look at the outside. you have some windows that are
8:31 am
very small versus some of the windows that pull out. so, in the cases where i'm looking at slide number 18, it almost looked like it's not finished, that we either ran out of money and where would have been a big area that maybe a window would have been, i'm looking at the green sections, that almost like ran out of money and when we did is we put in a small window. that's not wow. the -- i think if i were to live in one of these units i would probably get claustrophobic. i don't mean to be disrespectful, but maybe we can take a look at, you know, putting bigger windows or something. i mean, i like the fact that it tilts so it gives people an
8:32 am
opportunity to have that bay view, but maybe we can put glass where there's those four squares, four rec tangles that maybe instead of putting one small one in a place, we can put, fill in the rest. so i'm hoping we can take a look at that. i like the colors, i think you guys have done a good job with that. i think you know what i'm saying. >> okay. >> so -- i would love to see some effort to take a look at that and rethink how that can look so that folks who live in these units can have enough light because units are small, and you know, i think it would be helpful to them. some hoping and praying that it is. those are my only comments. >> ok, thank you.
8:33 am
>> thank you, commissioner bustos. i have a few questions. how many floors are these? >> it's four floors. >> four floors. and so i understand -- >> sorry, five floors, sorry. >> five, ok. and you count the ground floor as one floor? >> yes. >> well, like in other countries. and the square footage of the units again? >> those average, i want to say 366 square feet for the regular studio units. and for the studio plus units it's an average of 468 square feet. >> really small. so, larger windows might provide that feeling of space. so i understand that this is the first modular built-building, so, i'm sure everybody is going to be looking at it and perhaps the wow factor that commissioner bustos is looking for would be great, and so how much exactly are we saving by going through
8:34 am
modular? >> we'll know a little more when we get the bids back. after the r.f.p. goes out in february. initial estimates have us saving approximately 10% in construction costs. so, initial estimates around 6.5 million and saving four months of vertical construction time. >> can you walk us through, or maybe the architect would, which four portions are modular, all four floors, can you enlighten us who are not architects? >> happy to. the ground floor is all site built. it's not modular. >> and the community room is in the ground floor, right? >> welcome back. all the community serving facilities are on the ground floor. upper floors are residential. >> washer, dryers. >> all the rooms, on the ground
8:35 am
floor. we try to concentrate all the community functions together to help build community and get people out of their apartments and interacting with other people. >> and the parking, i know there is only two spaces, but the parking and the bicycle, is it in the basement, going to be a basement. >> there's no basement. >> two parking spaces and the bike parking on the ground floor. bike parking is right next to the main entrance, so it's very convenient. >> so it's all -- all of those services are on the ground floor and the modular pieces. >> modulars will be the upper floors and one of the advantages of the ground floor be nonmodular, the construction can be going on while the modular pieces are being fabricated off site. so, ideally when the ground floor is far enough along, the modular components will show up and start to stack on top of the ground floor. so, they, to be most efficient,
8:36 am
they typically, and the modular units are based on what you can get on a truck and truck to san francisco. so, there's a limit on how wide they can be. usually one room wide, about 14 feet, and they can be up to 75 or so feet long. so we end up actually building them with two units and a piece of the corridor in between as a single module because it's more efficient to truck it and two units at once in a sense. >> oh, ok. >> so, two units at a time will be stacked up on top of the ground floor structure and -- >> two units on one floor on top of the ground floor and you build on to the fifth floor. >> stack on top of another for the three upper floors. the interior of the units will be finished, completely finished.
8:37 am
painted, the idea is not to have to go back in there after it leaves the factory. >> and the facade, too, right? >> the facade and the corridors are site fabricated. the corridors where all the connections to electrical and plumbing and mechanical happen, have to happen on-site. and there's not really any economy to do any exterior in the factory. so, all that will be done just like it would on any other building, all done on-site. the roof will be done on-site as well. so, the modules, when they leave the factory, they are wrapped with weather protection on the truck. when they get into san francisco, they are staged and some off site location nearby. so that -- >> you mean staged like putting all the pieces together like a lego, right? >> no, they are actually just parked, basically. because once the erection of the
8:38 am
module starts, you want to have all of them available. don't want the crane to be waiting for more. and correct me if i'm describing this wrong. they want enough volume nearby to start the craning process, keep them coming in so they never really stop until the building is fully erected. >> so, we are really saving in time, too. >> yes. substantially, you know. it would take months to do that, if it was site-built. >> with all the 140 something -- how many units? >> 140 plus manager's unit. >> plus manager's unit. >> one comment on the windows. i hear what you are saying and i appreciate your comments. it might be a little deceiving. our bay windows are nine feet tall and floor to ceiling windows. they are five feet wide and 100% window area, from one end of the
8:39 am
bay to the next. the smaller-looking windows are bigger than they might appear. two and a half feet wide and 5 to 6 feet tall. so, they are -- where we don't have bay windows, we elected to pretty much do most of the exterior wall glass. so i think from the standpoint of light and openness, i think the units are good. they only have one wall of windows because they are studio apartments, and there are a few corner ones we can put additional window in. we really have tried to, from our experience doing other supportive housing, we understand that it makes a big difference to have generous windows in these small studio units, it makes them feel very different, having not too low ceilings makes a big difference as well. so, we are happy to look at it. maybe a little deceiving and if those were 3d studies we had
8:40 am
done. if they were professionally rendered they may look a little more appealing. i wanted to assure you that we have tried to be generous with the windows and will continue to look at that. >> how many elevators in the building? >> there's two. centrally located, so that, because this is a pretty spread out floor plan. so, we wanted to reduce the amount of distance that residents would need to walk to get to their apartments. so, in the center for that reason. >> so, since we are saving some money, the savings, what are we spending it on? did we have more units? i know you are smiling. we must have more units because of the savings we are making. >> yeah, so i think any funds that we are saving on this project would be available to us for future affordable housing projects. we still have several affordable housing parcels to develop in mission bay. >> so with all of these savings
8:41 am
we have and savings in time and construction, whatever, we are still meeting the s.b.e. requirements, right? >> that's our goal, yes. >> ok, thank you. thank you very much for the modular explanation and also the windows sizing. are there any -- i have another, commissioner singh. another question. >> from the architect. >> mr. lee. >> oh. mr. lee. ok. sorry. p>> i just want to know everything is properly distributed, contracts and everything. >> well, we are certainly working with the developer and the general contractor to ensure that we can get as much participation and local participation as well. >> thank you. >> ok. >> commissioner rosales. >> commissioner rosales: the target population.
8:42 am
i know you said it, i know i read it, so we are talking about studios, we are talking about relatively small spaces, obviously. so, we are looking at 366 square feet and 468. so, are we looking at single occupancy? >> generally, yes. all the referrals for the units will be coming in from the department of homelessness and supportive housing, and most of those referrals will be single persons, and so we won't restrict occupancy to only one person, but that will be the expectation and it will only be two people on very limited occasions, and no children will ever be referred to this building. >> ok. >> so this is through dahlia. >> this is not through dahlia, actually. >> i wanted to clarify. >> right. >> so there won't be -- >> won't be a lottery like we would typically do for the rest of our projects. so as they are continually being added into the coordinated entry
8:43 am
system, which is, connects all of the homeless services throughout the city, and they use that system then to prioritize people for permanent supportive housing, so they are coming in through shelters and navigation centers and then all referrals into this property will be managed through that system. >> with respect to the certificate of preference holders if there are any, they would rise to the list. >> that's correct. department of homelessness can cross check their database with most database for certificate of preference holders. >> c.o.p. will be part of those. >> c.o.p. holder would still have to meet the qualification of being homeless or at risk of homelessness, but yes, if they are in that system, they would rise to the top. >> these are rentals, right? >> yes. >> i want to know this is the first time we are dealing with the modular construction, we did before? no. >> no, we have not done this before. >> how much is saving?
8:44 am
>> so, at this point we'll know a little more and we can give you more specifics when we have come back for the gap loan in june, but as of now, we are anticipating approximately 10% construction cost saving. >> thank you. >> sure. >> just one other question. you said that the mayor's office has two other modular housing projects. are they done? >> they are not, no. they are ahead of us in the predevelopment process but are not in the ground yet. >> do you know where these are? >> yes, so -- >> location. >> one is on mission street, 1064-68 mission, federal parking lot and the other on treasure island, the big revamp there, and forgetting the unit size. on treasure island. >> how many units do you know each one? >> mission street project is
8:45 am
fairly large, targeting around 250 units. and treasure island, i want to say is around 115 or so. but don't quote me on that. >> so ahead of us in -- >> they will be ahead of us, yes. >> well, thank you. are there any other questions? so hearing -- yes. one more. so, a motion from commissioner singh to approve this and second. >> i second. >> from commissioner rosales. madam secretary, please call the roll call. [roll call vote taken] madam chair, four aye and one absent. >> the motion carries. thank for being here and thoughtful answers. we look forward to hearing more
8:46 am
about the progress of the project. madam secretary, please call the next item. >> next order of business is agenda item 5b, workshop on the recognized obligation payments scheduled for july 1, 2019, to june 30, 2020, lots 19 through 20 for discussion. madam director. >> thank you. through the chair, this item is routine, administrative as you know, under the law we are required to submit recognized obligation payment schedule each year for the following fiscal year, and it is due to the department of finance on february 1st, and we actually had a workshop with the oversight board on this matter, we wanted to bring this to you as an informational item understanding we are still preparing our budget and will be coming later to you this fiscal year for approval.
8:47 am
so, this is just information on item what we are thinking about, it's likely to change slightly by the time you get to review the budget, but this is a nice overview and recap what the budget will look like when it comes to you for approval. for that, present on the item. >> thank you, director. my name is mina yu, financial reporting and analysis, and talking to you about -- about our rops 19-20. as you might recall, five funding sources in our rops. the first of which is proceeds, b prior and anticipated. we also have our reserve funds, which are our due diligence review balances. other funds, developer payments, grants and other sources that are not captured in the four other buckets. we have nonadmin, our redevelopment property tax trust fund, funds our enforceable
8:48 am
obligations and admin, the cost allowance, and up by formula. so you can see in this next slide that our total is $403.7 million with proceeds the largest source, and makes sense as we issue bonds to build our infrastructure and housing and we pay our debt service on the bonds with our nonadmin. so this table provides a year over year comparison of the current year rops to the 19-20 proposed. the main drivers of decrease, spending down on infrastructure and changes to our affordable housing pipeline, particularly the delay due to reprogramming what was the retail center. here you can see our rops 19-20 request by use type. you can see the largest portion
8:49 am
of our rops is spent on affordable housing, 132.5 million, followed by the debt program. again we have a year over year comparison to our current year rops by use type, and the overall decrease here is primarily driven by changes in our affordable housing and the large commitment of funds in the current year's projects. the next table just shows the slice of our overall rops by use type in the last table. 166.8 largely reflects the tax increment payments, debt service on bonds. and again, a year over year comparison to our current year rops. just to give you some more context. and the overall increase is primarily driven by increases in our pledges. our use of pledge fund balance for two of our projects and two
8:50 am
new bond issuance, i'll talk about in the debt portion of the presentation. so here you can see that our affordable housing program is 132.5 million. of this, 91.2 will be used on gap loans for mission pay south 9 and 5254. and 21.8 million in predevelopment loans for seven projects. we have 13.8 in our housing pledge fund balance, which is pledged, gs fund the balance as we have not programmed it in the upcoming jeer but will in future years, and $5.7 million in affordable housing support. i'll provide greater details on these in the coming slides. so, 56.5 million on five
8:51 am
projects, mission bay, we have 59.5 million for three projects. and 11.7 million for two projects to produce 247 units. this slide just shows a summary overview of our affordable housing production obligation, and it only includes portfolio, in 19-20, a little over 1,140 units in the three project areas i had just spoken about. so, in mission bay we expect to expand 81.6 million. largest expenditure is on infrastructure of particularly developer infrastructure reimbursements. the second largest, the pledge balance. as we will use these, hold on to
8:52 am
the funds for future reimbursements once we have spent down the proceeds. and the smallest -- sorry, the smallest expenditure is on professional services and the art program. professional services will fund third party view of infrastructure reimbursement request, and the art program reflects expenditure fees for art installations in the public open spaces in the project. just the high level overview of our mission bay work program. facilitating the completion of infrastructure parks and streets, the chase event center, manage existing parks and open space and amending the redevelopment plan to increase our entitlements. in transbay, 28.7 million, largest will be on infrastructure specifically for the construction of street scape
8:53 am
and parks, and the second on the pledge, and the smallest on professional services, design, legal and other miscellaneous professional services. overall in transbay, monitoring the construction of the folsom approval project, schematic designs and draft construction plans for the parks. facilitate redevelopment plan amendment, and guidelines for transbay block 4, and monitor construction of blocks 1, 8 and 9, annine, and oversee the serv related to our block development. we anticipate expending $6 million in hpscp, largest on professional service, includes design, construction management, legal support, etc. we'll also be expending 4.7 million on
8:54 am
infrastructure and retain funds on community benefits for things like scholarships and improvement grants and lease payments and the fund balance. so completing five public parks in phase one. finalize design for four development blocks in phase one also. we'll design, redesign candlestick retail center, monitor the navy retesting and clean-up of phase 2 parcels. in our asset management program, expect to spend 7.8 million for the mexican museum to fund tenant improvement and obligation developments outside the three major areas and
8:55 am
implement the long range management plan, for the d disposition of the assets. and the debt program, as i mentioned earlier, we will be issuing two new bonds in 19-20. first of which is $25.3 million housing bond, which will fund, partially fund affordable housing loans, and $15.3 million infrastructure fund, infrastructure reimbursements. our overall bond program is $118.5 million, of which 98.3 funds our existing bond portfolio. costs related to the two new bonds are 4.4 million, .8 for the cost of issuance, and 3.6
8:56 am
the annual debt service. other items hotel occupancy funding, and we have $9 million on the ferry terminal landing, for which we approved, we received oversight approval in september of 2018. our operating budget is 18.6 million, and we will fund the majority of this with the nonadmin and other funds, developer fees. the funds are administrative costs and bond proceeds, staff time required to issue these bonds. so, of the 18.6 in operational costs, we expect to expend 9.6 million on salaries and benefits for the 54 f.t.e. positions, and 3.9 million on the retirement obligations and
8:57 am
5.1 in the nonlabor expenditures. of our 5.1 in nonlabor costs -- our 5.1 in nonlabor costs, work orders make up the largest portion of this, at $3 million. our professional services budget, public communication service, also funding for employee trainings, record storage, and i.t. so, as i mentioned, $3 million in work orders with our city partners. and of this, the largest portion spent on affordable housing services with the mayor's office of housing. also work orders for auditing and accounting services, legal, i.t. and project area support. this line just shows the break down of the calculation for our admin costs of 4.3 million.
8:58 am
we just received our january distribution, we'll be updating these after this presentation but it should not change significantly. and this table just details our retired and new lines, transfers of properties and completion of projects, and our new lines reflect initiation of our new projects and initiation of the two new bonds. so as the director mentioned, we presented to the oversight board yesterday. we are here presenting to you today. incorporate any of your comments and feedback and present the action item to the board on the 28th and submit our rops to the department of finance by february 1st. and i'm happy to take any questions. we also have our project managers here who will answer any further questions you might have on the projects. thank you. >> do we have any speaker cards?
