During the mid-1960's, architect Claude Oakland and builder Joseph Eichler collaborated on two affordable housing projects in District 10. One, the Geneva Towers high-rises, eventually became an infamous symbol of lawlessness. In an effort to stem the crime that made the Towers notorious, the buildings were demolished in 1998, making way for newer housing. The other development, the Geneva Terrace Townhouses, remains standing today. In a highly unusual departure from the typically progressive, sleek Eichler design statement, Eichler's Geneva Terrace Townhouses feature very traditional arched windows in a brick façade.
In addition to a select number of mid-century modern residences, there has been a concerted gentrification effort in San Francisco's District 10.
