San Francisco Campus for Jewish Living Opens Preview Center for $140M Expansion

SAN FRANCISCO — San Francisco Campus for Jewish Living (SFCJL), a continuing care retirement community in San Francisco, has opened a preview center at its 190-unit Frank Residences expansion.

The $140 million project will add 113 assisted living apartments and 77 memory care suites. The expansion includes 270,000 square feet of new construction, plus renovations to the community’s 362 skilled nursing units.

The new units are slated for occupancy in late 2019.  

“SFCJL leadership embarked on this project because they saw there was a real need in the community for modern housing where older adults could receive higher levels of care,” says Staci Chang, director of marketing and communications. “With this expansion, we are creating an economically sustainable model that will be viable for generations to come and expanding our services to serve the needs and wants of a broader population of older adults and their families.”

In addition to the new residential units, SFCJL is creating a “downtown” on campus with social and cultural activities, as well as medical services. Named Byer Square, the area will feature a primary, specialty and integrative health care clinic, along with a fitness and aquatics center, library, café, cinema, and a cultural and performing arts center.
