Housing Unit Production





In 2014, we saw an increase in the number of residential units coming into the market. It has been an exciting time for San Francisco as 4,000 units came online through the construction of new or expansion of existing properties. There are more projects in the queue for 2015, which will bring another wave of new units online.


Click the map to see residential projects that have been completed where Temporary Certificate of Occupancy (TCO) and Certificate of Final Completion (CFC) were issued in 2014.


Temporary Certificate of Occupancy (TCO) is normally issued to property owners who request permission to occupy their property before all work allowed under a building permit has been finished; and for which a CFC is required. Provided that all life/safety and disabled access work has been completed and provided that no substantial hazards exist, a Temporary Certificate of Occupancy (“TCO”) will be issued by the Department of Building Inspection when only “finish” work remains.


Certificate of Final Completion (CFC) is a document that attests that a building is safe and sound for human occupancy.
