After years of delays and negotiations to see that it was affordable, the Bay Area Reporter's April 16, 2015 issue had good news for LGBTQ seniors: work was finally beginning on a below-market-rate apartment complex at 55 Laguna Street.

The project, 40 residential units on the site of a former teachers' college, was overseen by Openhouse, a nonprofit that provides services to LGBTQ seniors, and Mercy Housing California.

Over a year later, in November 2016, the first residents began moving in, as the B.A.R. reported. Due to anti-discrimination laws, the city could not restrict the lottery used to select residents to LGBTQ people, but it turned out that about 60% of the residents identified as LGBTQ.
