rent control advocate quietly demolishing rent control

One of the primary advocates of rent control in San Francisco is apparently using his landlord status to demolish the very same rent control in San Francisco

Randy Shaw runs Tenderloin Housing Clinic, which has a contract with the city to 'master lease' SRO hotel rooms for homeless people in San Francisco. Tenderloin Housing Clinic does not own any of these buildings except for a newly constructed housing at 785 Brannan, The Galvin Apartments. All 16 other buildings are privately owned, usually by a Patel and is then master leased under contract with Tenderloin Housing Clinic which then acts as a property manager for the owner. Tenderloin Housing Clinic then contracts with the City of San Francisco to pay for all the extra support services for housing homeless people in these privately owned SRO's Continue reading »

Tenderloin Housing Clinic grant denied because of tenant complaints

Tenderloin Housing Clinic is now the biggest city funded non-profit in San Francisco with a budget of $92 million dollars, with nearly all of it coming from the Human Services Agency of San Francisco. It almost went to $93 million last month but an additional $153,000 was denied by the HSA because of tenant complaints at the Department of Building Inspection

Those DBI complaints were voiced at a budget meeting at the HSA on November 15, 2012. In short, Randy Shaw and Tenderloin Housing Clinic has essentially been slapped with a fine for being a slum lord. It's worth noting that the city of San Francisco pays this $92 million in order to provide safe, clean affordable housing to low income residents. Most of this money is supposed to be used for upkeep and maintenance, so if it isn't being used, where is the money going?

The first document is the minutes of the HSA meeting that includes the public comment from one of the tenants at the All Star hotel in the Mission, which is then followed by discussion and the motion to approve the additional $153,000 was denied because it failed to get a second vote. Also below is some of the actual complaints at the Department of Building Inspection

TENDERLOIN HOUSING CLINIC Adult Supportive Housing Program Manager Ylonda Calloway presented the request to modify the grant with TENDERLOIN HOUSING CLINIC for provision of the Housing First Program Care Not Cash and Non-Care Not Cash Sites; during the period of July 1, 2012 through June 30, 2013; in the additional amount of $153,415 fora revised total grant amount not to exceed $93,088,573.Additionally, Ms Calloway furnished an update re the All Star Hotel which has been deemed as safe. Eldon James Brown, a tenant of the All Star Hotel, expressed concern re the still existing building code violations which the building landlord has failed to address. Discussion followed.Commissioner Yamasaki moved approval of the Tenderloin Housing Clinic grant modification. The motion failed for the lack of a second

Mid Market’s highest crime building

The building with the most police, fire, and ambulance calls in Mid Market, San Francisco, is the Seneca Hotel at 34 6th street. This is a Housing First building run by Tenderloin Housing Clinic in San Francisco
This was written about once before in the Examiner. The building is run by Tenderloin Housing Clinic and Randy Shaw and is next door to Dotties True Blue Cafe. The Seneca was not always like this. It was much better before 1997 when Alfred Raynal owned it and it was a working persons SRO. In 1997 the building was sold to the Patels and subsequently master leased to Randy Shaw in 1999. The mayhem has been one of the highest in the city ever since 1997. This affects the Mid Market area and this is how to fix it


According to SFPD’s Department of Emergency Management, police have been called to the Henry Hotel 143 times since early November, an average of just more than one call per day. Of seven residential hotels in the area The San Francisco Examiner inquired about, only one other, the Seneca Hotel, was the source of more calls: 287.

What the Examiner was looking at was 911 dispatch records. Below are three months of these records, January-March 2012. There's a pretty good chance Randy Shaw runs the highest crime building in the entire city of San Francisco. These stats have been posted here at Bluoz twice before here and here

Tenderloin Housing Clinic now biggest non profit in San Francisco

Three years ago the California Academy Academy of Sciences was the biggest. Two years ago, Tenderloin Housing Clinic was approved for 82 Million

Today, July 31, 2012, the San Francisco Board of Supervisors approved a record 91 million dollar contract for Tenderloin Housing Clinic. This is very possibly the biggest award in history ever given to a San Francisco city funded non profit

Here is a video from April 2012 at the Board of Supervisors with Randy Shaw saying that Tenderloin Housing Clinic is broke and can't fix the carpets.

Here is the contract that the Board of Supervisors approved. As you can see, each of the 15 SRO buildings average 1 million dollars, not including the rent. 1 Million dollars just to maintain the buildings and provide 'support services'

Here is the San Francisco Controllers list of all city funded non profits for 2009-2012. Only a handful get more than 10 million a year. many smaller ones no longer get any funding at all
