With Tenants Together, the Anti-Eviction Mapping Project is releasing this map of Blackstone owned properties in California on February 11, 2015 - an international day of action coordinated with PAH solidarity groups in New York and Barcelona fighting against displacement by Blackstone.
Blackstone spends roughly $100 million a week on foreclosed properties in USA. They buy properties that have lost value, and wait for the value to increase. They also buy rental properties, where they raise rents as much as they can and evict tenants without hesitation.
According to public records, Blackstone owns over 4000 single family homes in California. They have also moved to purchase multi-family buildings at the end of last month. It concerns us because this is yet another example of consolidated wealth in our society, and most of the markets Blackstone is buying in, have very few tenant protections. Most notably, single-family homes can’t be subject to rent control according to California state law (Costa Hawkins Act). What we have seen so far is Blackstone-Invitation Homes placing more of the burdens of home ownership on tenants, without any of the benefits. We haven’t seen mass evictions or rent increases, but without tenant protections against these things, it’s something we fear when they decide to get out of the rental market, or that they’re not getting enough “return on their investment.” In California, their presence has been most felt in Sacramento.

We have witnessed a steep increase in tech-based cohabitating in recent years, very much resultant from the Silicon Valley Tech Boom. From hacker homes to digerati dorms, there are abundant spaces for tech workers to cohabitate with other tech workers. While we very much support collective living and live/work spaces, there are some tech communes that seem to be fulfilling less of a politically radical mission, and more of a capitalistic infrastructure. Instead of embracing the communal spirit of the 1960s, it seems that these digerati dorms are run by owners and middleman companies that are often charging above market rates while pretending the hacker home is part of a collectivist ethos.

The Anti-Eviction Mapping Project has documented the latest American Community Study (ACS) data visualizing the staggering number of homes that are unoccupied on a consistent basis in San Francisco, CA. Each dot represents 10 homes, arranged by census tract.
2012 ACS data indicates there are 30,057 vacant homes in San Francisco. A common residents per unit calculation is 2.8 persons, meaning that the city of San Francisco has empty homes capable of housing more than 84,000 more people than it does.
According to a 2013 comprehensive report on homelessness by the city of San Francisco, one of the wealthiest cities in the richest nation in the world, contains 6,636 homeless adults and 914 homeless children and transition-age youth, totaling 7,550 homeless persons. According to Anti-Eviction Mapping Project’s previous Airbnb and VRBO map, almost 7,000 units are available for short-term rental online.
The Vacant Homes in San Francisco map yields another irony: two of the districts with the densest numbers of homeless persons also contain the most vacant homes. According to the homelessness report, census tract 6, which includes most of the Tenderloin and SOMA neighborhoods, contains over 3,000 homeless persons, as well as the highest density of vacant homes.

In San Francisco, the bulk of 311 requests are related to "cleaning" up buildings, sidewalks, and streets. How much do such requests indicate hyper-gentrification? In SoMa and the mid-Market region, the majority of the requests are proximate to the Twitter tax break zone, where numerous tech companies have settled over the last few years. Chinatown and the Mission have been ground zeros for evictions since 2012, and we have seen increased call volumes within them. Furthermore, we have witnessed new developers such as Maximus contract groups like "Clean Up the Plaza" to rid the 16th Street BART Plaza in the Mission from its homeless population, resulting in increased policing of youth of color.

This map debunks the myth of the millionaire renter, as it is clear that property owners make significantly more than renters in this city. With income inequality growing more rapidly right now in San Francisco than in any other United States city, and with San Francisco being a 63% renter-occupied city, this is significant. Viewers can drag the map over the divide to see the difference in income between renters and owners. They can also zoom into examine neighborhood details or zoom out to view differences across the rest of the US. By the Anti-Eviction Mapping Project.
