HAYWARD, Calif. — EAH Housing has broken ground on Mission Paradise, an affordable seniors housing community in the Bay Area city of Hayward.
DAHLIN Group designed the property, which J.H. Fitzmaurice Inc. is building.
“We are amid a housing crisis that is being exacerbated by inflation and lack of affordable housing across the country, and more specifically in California,” says Assemblymember Liz Ortega. “We have a moment of opportunity in the here and now to take actionable steps that will support organizations like EAH Housing to address the severe housing crisis.”
The two-tower Mission Paradise is an apartment community for seniors with income levels ranging from 20 percent to 80 percent of the area median income (AMI). The property will include a total of 76 apartments, with 15 units specifically reserved for formerly homeless individuals and families, 11 of which are designated ‘No Place Like Home’ units reserved for households with an individual with a severe mental illness.
Financing participants include Chase, City of Hayward, County of Alameda, CA Department of Housing and Community Development – Accelerator, and MHP.
