4:00 am
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, they typically, and the modular units are based on what you can get on a truck and truck to san
4:01 am
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. painted, the idea is not to have to go back in there after it leaves the factory. >> and the facade, too, right?
4:02 am
>> 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 module starts, you want to have all of them available. don't want the crane to be
4:03 am
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 bay to the next. the smaller-looking windows are bigger than they might appear. two and a half feet wide and 5
4:04 am
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 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
4:05 am
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 we have and savings in time and construction, whatever, we are still meeting the s.b.e. requirements, right?
4:06 am
>> 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. i know you said it, i know i read it, so we are talking about studios, we are talking about relatively small spaces,
4:07 am
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 system, which is, connects all of the homeless services throughout the city, and they use that system then to
4:08 am
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? >> 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
4:09 am
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 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.
4:10 am
>> 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 about the progress of the project. madam secretary, please call the next item. >> next order of business is
4:11 am
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. 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
4:12 am
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 obligations and admin, the cost allowance, and up by formula.
4:13 am
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 of our rops is spent on affordable housing, 132.5 million, followed by the
4:14 am
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 new bond issuance, i'll talk about in the debt portion of the presentation.
4:15 am
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 projects, mission bay, we have
4:16 am
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 the funds for future reimbursements once we have spent down the proceeds. and the smallest -- sorry, the
4:17 am
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 and parks, and the second on the pledge, and the smallest on
4:18 am
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 infrastructure and retain funds on community benefits for things like scholarships and
4:19 am
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 implement the long range management plan, for the d
4:20 am
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 the annual debt service.
4:21 am
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 5.1 in the nonlabor expenditures. of our 5.1 in nonlabor costs --
4:22 am
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. we just received our january distribution, we'll be updating these after this presentation
4:23 am
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? madam secretary. >> yes, madam chair, ace washington g.
4:24 am
>> so, as we go into this, let me push this here. you know, i hate to come with bad news and i hate to kick a horse when he's down, but y'all are going to have to hear what i say because i done been around. case in point, clarification, are y'all going to be able to, after you go into closed session, are we going to be able to speak on the closed session? councilman? do you normally do that? used to do that, you came back out? so anyway, i'm not into litigation but my name is ace and i'm in the community, i can speak the way i want to speak. you are going to go back and speak on with argie, i have
4:25 am
known him for years, this lawsuit he got going against y'all, i can speak, i'm like trump. i know you are going to speak about that. the issue is, case in point, y'all know i've been coming here religiously actionings before y'all turned over to ocii to come to the fillmore, it ain't like i'm slapping you in your face. but no, this is ace in your face. even though y'all got a case, i've been on the case. and i'm willing to testify however, whoever wanted. my opinion on augie, he's not going to split up my community and not get away going after the queen, not in front of me, the queen is london breed, ok? what do you think he's doing by filing a lawsuit against y'all, but then hold up. isn't the city and county filing a lawsuit against, how do you pull up that balance there?
4:26 am
my name is ace, damn it, i'm on the case. i got a story to tell. now, let's do it this way. i got three options for y'all. recommendations. sit down and have a meeting with your executive staff and your lawyers with case ace on the case, fillmore ambassador, allow me to come before you and make a presentation about the fillmore, include everything. y'all bring your bones out to the fillmore, i've been asking you for years, let's have a community town hall meeting. i'm appalled. now, in speaking politically speaking, london should not be involved with this, although her name is involved with this. if i had to somebody people, when i go up there and talk to newsom about what's going on here, he's going to say ace, what the hell's going on. so in closing, my name is ace,
4:27 am
i'm on the case. you let aggie know, community reform, community, court of community needs to do this in order to be down in there, with he can settle this if he wants to be about the community. i don't want our community split up no more than it has to be, because i'm going to create community reform from this issue. >> no more speaker cards. >> hearing no further request to speak, i'll now close public comments. are there any questions from commissioners? yes. commissioner singh. >> commissioner singh: all these bonds, what is the interest in all this? >> that might be a question our director of finance -- >> any name is brie mahorder.
4:28 am
i believe your question is what is the interest rate we are paying for each of the bonds in the debt service portfolio. each bond actually has a different interest rate that is established at the time of issuance. so, and the interest rate for the new bonds that we may issue next year would be established at the time of issuance next year, and it will depend on market conditions at the time of issuance. >> are these tax exempts? >> combination of tax exempts and taxable. we use tax exempt bonds to finance infrastructure reimbursements and tax bonds to finance housing in general. >> how many total money we owe, billions of dollars, what -- >> outstanding portfolio, slightly more than $900 million. >> ok. thank you so much. >> you are welcome. >> a little under a billion. any other comments, questions? >> i have a question.
4:29 am
>> commissioner rosales: on page 20 of the presentation, i just, i think i forgot, so i'm going to ask the question. there's the reference to the tjpa pledge, 8.6 million. can you remind me? why are we pledging 8.6 million? and for what purpose would that pledge be? >> that's the trans pay joint powers authority pledge. and so that's codified by our tax increment and sales proceeds agreement. this is the amount we remit every year. >> oh, ok. >> transfer to the tjpa. so, all parcels, state owned
4:30 am
parcels that generate increment, is pledged to the trans pay general powers authority for the transit -- >> so is this amount fixed every year, or is it a different amount, depending on -- >> it's not fixed, it's based on the property tax assessment rolls, so increases over time. >> ok. 8.6. ok. so then on slide 23, there's a reference to the hunters point community benefits, community hpocp community benefits, and maybe this is more of a question for our executive director. these community benefits i know are just our obligation for community, not -- maybe i'm misstating this. the community benefits that are
4:31 am
in the ocii jurisdiction. >> this is the one that the developer is obligated that we oversee. >> yes. >> it's not the only one. >> so we didn't -- do we know or can we -- i know we have received reports over time on this, but when i see community benefits, 3.1, it would be good to know what is the supplemental or the additional haments of commun benefits. >> what's remaining or what the -- >> no, i'm sorry, the legacy commitment. is there a way for us to know that? >> oh, we have that, and i think it was presented at a prior meeting. i don't have it off the top of my head, i'll have lila see if we can recall what that number is. >> so, while we are waiting for lila to come up, the money comes to us, or goes directly to the legacy foundation, or lila will answer that.
4:32 am
>> project manager, hunters point shipyard. 3.1 includes amounts that the legacy is a part of. so the legacy is an advisory body to ocii on community benefits and as they have come here to this strategic plan, they presented what they intend to spend in the first five years. i don't have that dollar amount but we could get that to you specifically, but this is inclusive of that. i don't know if you were speaking about the i.c., the other community benefit agreement funds that also have a report out at the quarterly community benefits report that you received last month. there's a report on what they are spending in the i.c., what we don't control. >> i was more interested in the holistic picture of the amount of money going in this period of
4:33 am
time for community benefits to the hunters point shipyard. >> i think we'll be happy to bring that to you specifically for this, because it was the rops idea, so very high level. so as part of our budget, and we can do deep dive on what that would go to. >> and what is i.c. again? >> i.c. we -- >> implementation -- >> i don't know off the top -- maybe ray would know. >> implementation committee, i.c. committee was set up before the project received approval. i.c. of the legacy foundation. it's separate. >> so the legacy foundation is very much related to ocii, the community benefits, some clear like there's fixed amounts that have to go for specific purposes, and also a certain
4:34 am
amount in the phase one community benefits that have flexibility how you would ex pend it, we put time putting together strategic plan how to spend that money and then there's others, very discreet money set aside for a very specific person, like scholarships, travel, very specific, nonne -- and contractor mobilization, community die lotion, other sort of elements that the legacy foundation came up with that they wanted to see used for some of the more flexible funds. >> and my question about the money from the developers, does it come to us, or -- because i seem to recall that the fiscal sponsor from the legacy foundation is the san francisco foundation. so, san francisco foundation is
4:35 am
helping the i.c., they did not have a role in our community benefits. so right now we have the funds. >> we have the funds. >> we have the funds and then legacy advising us, and since we have contracting obligation, tashika will be coming forward really soon with r.f.p. ideas for the scholarship fund, we have to do competitive process. some cases we came to you with like the hacker hub, so many people in the field, we are not experts on who is the best, and might want to engage with several administrators of scholarship funds. we will release the r.f.p. >> other questions? >> on slide 27, long range property management plan referencing -- can you focus us
4:36 am
on what are the properties? identified here for western addition. >> i think we have another -- >> she's here, know we are going to ask. >> commissioners, i'm hilde mild. properties in different areas, fillmore heritage center, and we have some other i think only one remnant properties, we have the ellis street driveway, directly adjacent to the fillmore heritage, it's the driveway into that retail shopping center. i believe that is all that we in the course of some of our development projects have remnant parcels in some cases rights-of-way, sidewalks, things like that, so not major, they
4:37 am
are not, they don't have development potential, but they are things that we just want to tie up as loose ends and make sure that they are under the correct jurisdiction for governmental purpose or the city, so they are maintained and going forward closed out correctly. does that answer the request he? >> thank you. don't go away. >> since she's here -- >> i have a question. since you addressed western addition, what about the yerba buena center, except the mexican museum. >> we transferred the gardens last june, and in the -- >> transferred to the city. >> yes. >> and they are working with the conservancy now. in terms of yerba buena center, finishing up the project, the purchase and sale agreement with 706 mission developer and the mexican museum.
4:38 am
>> it's the mexican museum. >> so the completion of the overall project, a mixed use project with residential and commercial and then a condo parcel that would be the home, future home of the museum, but that's slotted for conveyance to the city and they would become the landlord of the cultural operator, the tenant, the museum in that condo space. >> and the golden gateway, what else are we doing? >> i believe there is an easement, there are some sort of, as i mentioned sort of remnant parcels, so golden gate, i believe there is an easement remaining on an older project and also in the yerba buena center, remnants, parcels adjacent to parcels, and -- >> south of market, since we are
4:39 am
covering. >> south beach, the south beach harbor lease terminations, and south of market i can't recall any specific properties. there may be some like sidewalk public rights-of-way types of things. >> and eventually all of these will be turned over to the city. >> correct, correct. yes. there are some private dispositions as well. for example, some of the sidewalk parcels are slated for adjacent developments. >> ok. anything else? >> and interrupt -- >> anything else? >> that was just sort of off the top of my head. but i can always give a more complete summary. >> that will be great if you do have a summary, just a little detail. >> just -- just enough. >> one last question is on the work orders with city
4:40 am
departments. why is the city attorney's office getting so few dollars, if i'm reading this right, $50,000 for the city attorney's office? >> yes. the, in the work orders that only includes agency costs but there are costs that we have with, that are embedded in the project costs, further expenses with the city attorney. >> if they were a trans pay project we may need the city attorney on. >> right. it would be embedded in the transbay costs. >> i see. >> well -- first commissioner, we would seek to cover those local services in house, and if we needed supplemental, we would go to the city attorney's office. if we needed something beyond that, we would hire somebody. >> yep. >> so in that order, we try to keep it all in house as much as possible. >> i agree with that. thank you. >> thank you. any other questions?
4:41 am
so, this is a discussion item. there is no vote required. and so if there are no other questions and comments from my fellow commissioners, madam secretary, call the next item. >> thank you, mina, thank you. >> the next order of business is item 6, public comment on nonagenda items. and we have one speaker card. oh, two speaker cards. one is ace washington, ok. oscar james. >> thank you commissioners. i want to thank my big brother for coming back in his chair, good to see you, commissioner
4:42 am
singh. i thought they were going to talk about building 101 at hunters point shipyard, remodelling of the building 101. i was at the -- excuse me, i was at the cac meeting last night and lashon walker was there, she gave a nice presentation on a lot of the things you guys got through asking about. one of my concerns is building 101 with the remodelling and what have you, there was a gentleman, and i think i brought this up before to the commission here, mr. karl campbell, who was the compliance officer in hunter's point shipyard, and doing the whole while the hunter's point shipyard was going up until the close, and i also brought some things for you guys to look at that gives a history of hunters point, the whole hunters point community
4:43 am
from 1956 to 1980, and 1 of the last parts, i want that building, building 101 named after mr. karl kimbro, and the reason i say that, being a teenager coming up, well, a teenager from hunters point and representing the people from west addition, every summer mr. kimball would make sure people from hunters point and western addition, fillmore, got jobs down at hunters point shipyard. the young teenagers, 18, 16, what have you, we had a saying back then because we were club members of different clubs and things, if we didn't work, we were going to go to school with new clothes, ok. so, either we are going to go down and shoplift or you are going to give us summer jobs and make an honest living. so, the majority of us got jobs in hunters point shipyard, under mr. karl kimbro, so he kept a
4:44 am
lot of violence and what r have you, and mayor shelly at the time, and christopher. they used to make sure the city did a program with the shipyard to make sure people got jobs. so i would like that building named after him. and also dry dock four, the firstship burnt at dry dock four was burnt by a resident of hunters point, we would like to have dry dock four and i mentioned this last night to lenar, and asking this commission to make sure the dry dock four is named after him. but anyway, i'm giving each one of you guys this, as your leisure, look through it and find the history of bay view-hunters point, and shows
4:45 am
the clubs, the riot in 1966 when i was an active participant, and it just gives you the history of hunters point and how the people there made sure things happen such as this commission here, having minorities representing the city and county of san francisco. when i first started with the redevelopment agency, it was all italians and jewish on the commission. we turned over desks and what have you in 1982 to make sure we have you guys representing us, the people in the communities. so, even our council here, we had a person, mr. boreguard, who was the council, even got him removed and got, you know, the council we have today. >> thank you. >> thank you guys. keep up the good work. and like i say, good to see my brother up there.
4:46 am
