Rodo--the TL has the highest concentration of non-profit, low-income, subsidized housing of any place in the United States. That housing is earmarked for addicts, ex-cons, and the mentally ill. They are the ones who give the TL a bad name, and there are tons of them living in the neighborhood because the City has purposefully structured its housing policies and tax credit agreements to locate so much of that kind of housing in the TL. (Some of it is in SOMA, the Mission, etc.) The buildings are basically run like public housing projects in terms of eligibility for residency, but are technically owned by the private sector. This housing, and the Hotel Conversion Ordinance, are what have been keeping the TL down for decades. Mid-Market will NEVER improve without changing the surrounding housing component. The poverty pimps will die fighting to keep it the way it is.
