KTGY-Designed Transit-Oriented Affordable Housing Community Targeting Large Families Breaks Ground

EAH Housing, City of Emeryville, KTGY Architecture + Planning Celebrate Groundbreaking of Estrella Vista in Emeryville, California

OAKLAND, CALIF. – (RealEstateRama) — International award-winning firm KTGY Architecture + Planning announces that nonprofit developer, manager and advocate of affordable housing EAH Housing and the City of Emeryville celebrated the ground-breaking of a new 86-unit transit-oriented mixed-use residential development on Wednesday, October 11, 2017, at 3706 San Pablo Avenue in the downtown area of Emeryville, Calif. The new $64 million multi-family rental community answers the demand for more family-friendly housing near transit and will provide up to four-bedroom apartment homes to households earning 30 to 60 percent of Alameda County’s area median income. Walk Score gave the location a score of 90, calling it a “Walker’s Paradise.” Residents can walk to the MacArthur BART station, which is just 0.7 miles away, or take a bus from the property to BART. Walk Score also called the location “Very Bikeable.”

“We recognize that California, specifically the Bay Area, has been in a housing crisis for a while,” said Mary Murtagh, president and CEO of EAH Housing. “The last new affordable community EAH built in the Emeryville/Oakland area had over 5,000 applications for 100 apartment homes. To get to this point, everyone worked hard. KTGY and EAH Housing are proud that hundreds more people, including children and seniors, will soon have an affordable place to call home at Estrella Vista.”
