Project Overview

5M will be a mixed-use development that includes 688 units of housing, 600,000 square feet of commercial space, including office and neighborhood serving retail as well as over an acre of public open space and a dedicated 12,000 square feet of non-profit arts space on site.  The focus is on a project that connects with the local community and builds on the vibrancy of the neighborhood through activated open spaces, streets, and alleyways.

The project sponsor, Forest City, received approval from the Board of Supervisors in December 2015, which included providing 241 units of new affordable housing, and over $65million dollars in fees and benefits which will be directed back into the surrounding community for schools, parks, workforce development, the Old Mint, and senior housing.
