Bay Area Affordable Housing Completed
- Jul 11, 2016
Vacaville, Calif.—Kimme’s Place, an affordable housing community in the Bay Area suburb of Vacaville, Calif., has been completed. The property includes a combination of 66 reconstructed and new units.
CFY Development Inc. and the EGIS Group Inc. developed the $15 million property, which took about a year to complete. Bruce Keith served as the project’s architect.
WNC, a specialist in community development initiatives, provided about $3.4 million in low-income housing tax credit (LIHTC) equity to fund the development. The City of Vacaville, Boston Capital and JP Morgan Chase provided additional funding.
Located at 1437 Callan St., Kimme’s Place consists of 26 one-bedroom and 40 two-bedroom garden-style units for families. Common amenities include onsite management, a laundry facility, fitness center, classroom/computer room and picnic area. Each unit is equipped with energy efficient appliances, inset LED lighting and granite countertops.
The project was named in honor of Ernest Kimme, who died last year. Kimme was a local educator who taught math at Vaca Pena Middle School for 25 years. He also was a member of the Vacaville City Council during the 1990s and was vice mayor.
