History

The site, built in the 1940s, was recently rated by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development with a score of 26 out of 100, ranking it as one of the worst housing developments in the United States, with problems such as boarded-up units, lack of smoke detectors, mold, broken appliances, holes in walls, bullet holes in walls, sewage flowing through the street because of a broken pipe, and burnt out garbage cans, and was the site of a housing fire in 1997 that killed 6 people. The City paid off a $12 million lawsuit to the fire victims' families in April 2009.

It is also the site of many crimes, which contributed to the homicide rate in San Francisco in the past, and It also recently received gunshot sensors due to the amount of crime in the area.

Reconstruction

There are currently plans to overhaul the complex, which won't break ground until 2009, as the development is compared to some residents as a third-world country.
