Projects in Construction


April 28, 2020

Construction continues on essential campus construction projects.
SF State has continued construction on two projects: the Liberal & Creative Arts Building at Font Boulevard and Tapia Drive, and a student housing project at Varela Drive and Holloway Avenue. Construction on both projects has been underway since 2018 and both will be completed this year. SF State has worked with the City & County of San Francisco, as well as the CSU Office of the Chancellor, to ensure that the projects can continue in light of current public health orders mandating that people shelter at home, except for essential workers. Both projects have been deemed essential and appear on the City & County of San Francisco’s list of approved construction projects. The university is committed to safety on the sites, and our contractors must follow the most recent protocols established by the San Francisco Department of Public Health. These include stringent requirements to protect the community and the construction workers on site. A copy can be found at the SFDPH website:
Please direct any complaints, questions or concerns about these projects to Additionally, the City and County of San Francisco encourages residents to direct questions, concerns or complaints to its Service Center at 311.
