Hosted by EBALDC and Oakland Housing Authority

East Bay Asian Local Development Corporation has partnered with Oakland Housing Authority to build a new construction 71-unit affordable apartment building, with nearly 4,000 square feet of ground floor commercial space.  Located at the intersection of 11th and Jackson Streets in Oakland, the new development lies at the edge of the historic Oakland Chinatown neighbourhood, just a few blocks from Lake Merritt. The site is located within a rapidly gentrifying neighbourhood.  The surrounding area has some of the lowest per-capita incomes in the City, yet also exhibits some of the region’s highest land prices, which underscores the need to build affordable housing that can help bring families back into the neighbourhood. The site is close to local retail merchants, social service agencies, cultural resources, and Lincoln Elementary School, whose academic test scores are among the highest in the region. Residents will also benefit from immediate proximity to two BART stations, a Bus Rapid Transit stop, and public amenities such as libraries and parks
