The 128 units will be reserved for very-low and low-income households, and are slated for the corner of Ralph Appezzato Memorial Parkway (RAMP) and Orion Street.
Eden Housing, a non-profit development corporation, will be developing the units.
The developer’s proposal calls for two separate buildings: a senior community building and a family community building.
According to the city staff report for the planning board meeting, “the senior building will include 59 very low and low income one and two bedroom units. The family building will include 69 very low and low income family apartments including both one, two and three-bedroom units. Each building has a two-bedroom unrestricted apartment for an on-site resident manager. Therefore, the total of 128 units is proposed on Block 8. To qualify as low or very low income a household earns between 30 and 60 percent of Alameda County Area Median Income.”
The entrance to the senior’s building would be directly across from a planned new location for the static A-4 Skyhawk aircraft on a podium, near the former Main Street main gate to the Alameda Naval Air Station.
A 56′ pedestrian park would run between the two four-story buildings.
A total of 200 affordable housing units are planned for Site A, as are an additional 600 market rate units.
The planning board meets at 7 p.m. on Monday, January 11th, in city council chambers at Alameda City Hall, 2263 Santa Clara Avenue.
