FREMONT, Calif. — Eden Housing has opened Pauline Weaver Senior Apartments, a 90-unit affordable housing community for seniors in Fremont, located at the southeast edge of San Francisco Bay.
KTGY Architecture + Planning designed the project. The City of Fremont also partnered on the development.
Formerly known as Mission Court, units are reserved for seniors earning between 30 and 50 percent of area median income. The community sits on a 2.25-acre site approximately one mile from the Warm Springs BART Station.
“As the first piece of a greater age-qualified master plan, Pauline Weaver Senior Apartments sits across the street from a future senior center. This future amenity will not only enhance the lives of the residents living in this affordable community but also the future master plan,” says Jessica Musick, a principal in KTGY’s Oakland office.
Pauline Weaver, the property’s namesake, is a longtime advocate for affordable housing in California. She has been on the Eden Housing Board of Directors since joining in 1988. Weaver was an assistant public defender in Alameda County and the past president of both the National Conference of Women’s Bar Association and California Women Lawyers.
According to Eden Housing, the development has a unique financing structure (9 percent tax credit and 4 percent tax credit hybrid) that required significant coordination and partnership among public and private partners. The investors are Enterprise Community Investment and Morgan Stanley. The financial partners are City of Fremont, Housing Authority of the County of Alameda, County of Alameda, Enterprise Community Investment, Morgan Stanley, Chase, California Tax Credit Allocation Committee and California Debt Limit Allocation Committee.
