OAKLAND, CALIF. — Resources for Community Development (RCD) plans to develop a six-story affordable housing community in Oakland. The complex will offer 77 units, as well as a community room, courtyard with a play structure, leasing offices and ground-floor retail space. Units will be affordable to households earning between 20 and 50 percent of the area median income. On-site supportive services will be available to formerly homeless residents. RCD expects to receive a building permit for the project in late 2023. Construction will begin in the first quarter of 2024.

SVA Architects designed the community. Branagh Construction is the general contractor. The development is financed through funds from the City of Oakland, California Affordable Housing and Sustainable Communities, No Place Like Home funding, Infill and Infrastructure Grant program, Department of Toxic Substance Control and California Tax Credit Allocation Committee.
