Homelessness affects all ages, and each in different ways. Projects to provide more attainable housing often work best when things like age are considered. On one end of the spectrum is senior housing to help elderly people find homes in an inflationary environment where their fixed incomes lose buying power. The other end of the spectrum is housing for youth, and Villa Oakland is part of that solution.
Villa Oakland housing will in part be considered supportive housing for transitional aged youth soon to be or recently emancipated from the Alameda County Foster Care System.
The project transforms a currently vacant parcel on Downtown Oakland’s border and just under fifteen minutes walk from the 19th Street Oakland BART station.
This 105-unit multi-family affordable housing development will serve at-risk youth with about 53 units of permanent supportive housing. Youth unit types include both studio and one-bedroom units to accommodate single youth and youth who are custodial parents.
The development will also serve the workforce with 52 units. The Workforce unit mix includes Studios up to 3-bedrooms to serve Workforce families of all sizes. The property grounds will feature beautiful landscaping, an outdoor kitchen and dining area as well as a children’s play structure. This will be a LEED Gold certified green development.
