The Plaza Apartments is located at the corner of Sixth and Howard streets in San Francisco, California.

Plaza Apartments is a 9-story (and basement) mixed-use low-income housing building. It has 106 single room occupancy (SRO) efficiency studios with private baths. The housing part of the building contains community rooms, social services, laundry facilities and a rooftop patio garden for the previously chronically homeless tenants. The ground floor and basement levels include a credit union and a community theatre.

The city-owned building was developed by the Public Initiatives Development Corporation (PIDC), a subsidiary of the San Francisco Redevelopment Agency (SFRA).

Most of the $22 million in building financing was provided by SFRA and Enterprise Community Investment Inc.

The building was designed as a LEED for New Construction (LEED-NC) green building project and is seeking a LEED-NC rating of Silver. The Plaza Apartments also reflects the design principles of the Green Communities Initiative.

The building architectural design was a collaboration between Leddy Maytum Stacy Architects and Paulett Taggart Architects.

The building has many green features that make it healthier for tenants, more economical to operate and environmentally-sound in its use of materials.
