PAH Breaks Ground on $33M Silicon Valley Affordable Housing
- Jun 09, 2017
Palo Alto Housing, a nonprofit that builds, develops, acquires and manages low- and moderate-income housing in the San Francisco Bay Area, broke ground on Eagle Park Apartments, an affordable community in Mountain View, Calif. Van Meter Williams Pollack is the architect of the $33 million project and Branagh Inc. is the general contractor.
Located at 1701 El Camino Real, the half-acre property is within walking distance of groceries, pharmacies, restaurants and public transit. Eagle Park Apartments will feature 67 units which will house low-income veterans and households earning up to 60 percent of the county’s area median income. The unit mix will consist of 62 studios at 400 square feet and five one-bedroom units at 600 square feet.
Greenpoint rated buildings
The three-building project will be GreenPoint Rated through the inclusion of a solar thermal system, energy-efficient HVAC, energy-efficient lighting and water-conservation fixtures. Amenities will include roof decks, a community room with a computer lab, community kitchen, fitness center and elevator access on every floor.
Financing is provided by the City of Mountain View, County of Santa Clara, U.S. Bancorp, State Department of Housing and Community Development, Veterans Housing and Homelessness Prevention Program, California Housing Finance Agency, California Department of Veterans Affairs and Google.
The project is expected to be completed in the fall of 2018.
