Big plans for student housing in SF’s Potrero Hill, Dogpatch

San Fransisco Chronicle

The proliferation of upscale apartments that will double the population of Dogpatch and Potrero Hill over the next two years will soon be joined by a different residential wave: student housing.

On Potrero Hill, the California College of the Arts has started construction on a housing complex at 75 Arkansas St., a 65,000-square-foot building that will house 228 students. The $32 million project, which broke ground Monday, is the first phase in CCA’s plan to create 750 new beds for students on or near its campus by 2025.
