Project Statement

Located just north of downtown Oakland in an area rich with community resources and services, this project is a six-story, 58-unit permanent supportive housing multifamily project comprising 33 studios, 24 one-bedroom units and one two-bedroom property management unit. Coordinated support services and activities designed to help residents live more stable and productive lives include on-site workshops, group sessions, life skills, job training, informal gatherings and one-on-one meetings.

Residential common spaces include a multipurpose room, community kitchen, property management office, case manager offices and an outdoor courtyard with barbecues concentrated on the ground level. An additional outdoor common space is located on the second-floor podium level, with a small resident deck on the sixth floor. Trash and laundry facilities are located on each floor.

Because of a tenant population with a very low percentage of car ownership, the first-floor parking garage includes 10 parking spaces with one handicapped space, all reserved for residents, and bike storage to accommodate up to 63 bicycles.
