实施住房新政,提升湾区对全球人才的吸引力。近年来,城市生活成本的急剧上升,成为限制人才进入的主要因素之一。美国个人理财网站GOBankingRates 公布了2017年全美50个最大城市的居住成本排名:旧金山排名第一,圣何塞排名第二。而在全球范围内,经济学人智库(EIU)发布的《2019全球生活成本调查报告》中,旧金山在全球排名第10,比2018年上升4位。由此可见,湾区的生活成本无论在美国,还是在全球范围内,都是比较高的。在湾区的生活成本中,住房成本是影响到每个家庭和企业的重要问题。由于湾区的住房审批和建设系统跟不上就业增长的速度,可供使用的住房越来越少,房价不断上涨,通勤时间也变得更长,住房危机成为阻挡全球化精英人才进入湾区的重要因素。

为此,湾区委员会正在积极探索解决方案。2016年10月的湾区经济委员会报告显示,湾区目前有四个主要的住房项目,分别是:猎人点造船厂(e Hunters Point Shipyard)项目,10500个单位;金银岛(the Treasure Island)项目,7637个单位;Park Merced计划,5679个单位;Mission Rock计划,1500个单位。这四个大型项目将使旧金山的住房存量增加25300多套。湾区的目标是实现2015—2023年区域住房需求目标的125%,平均每年增加2.95万套,并将单位成本降低20%。

The Bay Area consists of nine counties: Alameda, Contra Costa, Marin, Napa, San Francisco, San Mateo, Santa Clara, Solano and Sonoma. The Bay Area data shown are totals for the nine counties.

The San Francisco Bay Area is located in northern California on the west coast of the United States. It consists of five major sectors: San Francisco, Peninsula, North Bay, East Bay, and South Bay. Many high-tech companies are clustered in South Bay. The South Bay is also known as Silicon Valley. The San Francisco Bay Area is an area with a multi-core structure. The three core cities are San Francisco on the San Francisco Peninsula, Oakland on the East Bay, and San Jose on the South Bay. Among them, San Francisco is the core city of the entire Bay Area, dominated by modern service industries such as tourism and finance; Oakland is located on the East Bay waterfront and is dominated by the port economy; San Jose is the core of the Silicon Valley in the South Bay. High-tech and bio-medicine industries are leading. As an established Bay Area, the total population, economic scale and economic growth rate of the San Francisco Bay Area are among the highest in the United States.

Worldwide, the San Francisco Bay Area has also developed into the most important high-tech R&D center, which has a wide-ranging and far-reaching impact on global economic development.

Implement the New Housing Policy to enhance the attractiveness of the Bay Area to global talents. In recent years, the rapid increase in the cost of living in cities has become one of the main factors restricting the entry of talents. The US personal finance website GOBankingRates announced the ranking of the cost of living in the 50 largest cities in the United States in 2017: San Francisco ranked first and San Jose ranked second. Globally, in the “2019 Global Cost of Living Survey Report” released by the Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU), San Francisco ranks 10th in the world, up 4 places from 2018. It can be seen that the cost of living in the Bay Area is relatively high both in the United States and globally. In the cost of living in the Bay Area, housing costs are an important issue affecting every family and business. As the housing approval and construction system in the Bay Area cannot keep up with the rate of employment growth, there are fewer and fewer available housing, housing prices continue to rise, and commuting times are becoming longer. The housing crisis has prevented global elites from entering the Bay Area. Important factor.

To this end, the Bay Area Committee is actively exploring solutions. According to the report of the Economic Commission of the Bay Area in October 2016, there are currently four major housing projects in the Bay Area, namely: e Hunters Point Shipyard project with 10,500 units; and the Treasure Island (the Treasure Island) Project, 7637 units; Park Merced plan, 5,675 units; Mission Rock plan, 1500 units. These four large-scale projects will increase the housing stock in San Francisco by more than 25,300 units. The goal of the Bay Area is to achieve 125% of the regional housing demand target from 2015 to 2023, an average increase of 29,500 units per year, and a 20% reduction in unit cost.
