U.S. Bank Celebrates Grand Opening Of Connections Housing

U.S. Bank will join Affirmed Housing Group on Monday, March 11 at 10 a.m. PT to celebrate the grand opening of Connections Housing, a 12-story historic building that will provide housing and services to San Diego’s homeless. U.S. Bank provided $16 million in financing for the construction and rehabilitation of the property, which is located at 1250 6th Avenue in San Diego.

“Connections Housing has been an important contributor to the health and soundness of our community,” said Steve Stuckey, president of U.S. Bank in San Diego. “We are proud to be their financing partner, and to join the City of San Diego and San Diego Housing Commission to wish them tremendous success in their new facility.”

Formerly the World Trade Center Building, the property has been transformed into a service and residential community designed to reduce street homelessness in San Diego's downtown neighborhoods by providing permanent and transitional housing.

The project consists of 73 studio units, which will be rented out as permanent supportive housing, plus two resident-manager units. The building will also include a primary care and a healthcare center on the first floor, 16 single-room-occupancy units and 134 transitional beds on the second and third floors, a multiservice center with offices, training and education rooms in the basement, and a full-service kitchen with training facilities.

“The monetary support provided by U.S. Bank has been fundamental in the completion of Connections Housing. Affirmed Housing Group is consistently pleased with our continued financial relationship with U.S. Bank and deeply appreciates their support,” said Jim Silverwood, president of Affirmed Housing Group.
