San Francisco Mayor Ed Lee announced a new public-private partnership to construct new housing for formerly homeless veterans and families in San Francisco’s Mission Bay neighborhood.

Lee, along with tech investor Ron Conway and Salesforce chief executive officer Marc Benioff, said a plot at 1150 Third St., near Mission Rock Street, is the intended site of an apartment building consisting of 50 housing units for formerly homeless veterans and 50 more for formerly homeless families, with one unit for an on-site manager.
