OAKLAND, CALIF. — East Bay Asian Local Development and Abode Housing Development have broken ground on The Phoenix, a 101-unit affordable housing development in Oakland. The project will develop a former industrial manufacturing site into a 44,179-square-foot residential building and a 7,300-square-foot community building with amenities such as a computer lab, community rooms, bike storage and social service offices. Units will come in studio-, one- and two-bedroom floor plans. Half of the units will be reserved for formerly unhoused individuals earning between 15 and 30 percent of the area median income (AMI). The other half will be for families and individuals earning at or below 50 percent AMI. The community was designed by Oakland-based Lowney Architecture.
