Summary of the Property
The 62-unit Abigail Hotel sits on McAllister Street, in the heart of downtown. In efforts to get the Abigail up and running this spring, THC is working in partnership with the City of San Francisco and the building owner to upgrade the property for incoming tenants. The building will house individuals through the Housing Ladder Initiative, formerly the Moving On Initiative, which helps folks move into private market housing with rental subsidies, which, in turn, frees up units for currently homeless families and individuals who need housing combined with services.
Abigail tenants will enjoy an open air lobby, on-site laundry, kitchen facilities, a community room, and bathrooms in each individual dwelling. The Abigail is considered a “Step Up” building, intended for tenants who have demonstrated an ability to live successfully with minimal staff and support services. Like the Bristol, our most recently acquired Step-up building, the Abigail will not have on-site Case Management or Property Management staff. Tenants will still have access to support from THC staff and from an on-site Resident Manager.
The Abigail hotel first opened its doors in 1925. In the 1980’s THC helped organize Abigail Hotel tenants to fight for the preservation of the hotel’s residential status. Forty years later, the demographic population that inhabited the hotel in 1980 will return to their rightful home. The hotel’s current, modern design is due to a remodel in 2011. The Abigail is steps from the Asian Art Museum, the San Francisco Public Library, and City Hall.
