Wednesday May 15th – Paseo Estero & Vista Estero Groundbreaking, 10:30am-12pm
Come celebrate as we break ground on new affordable housing communities in Oakland and honor the housing advocacy efforts by community partners to bring this development to fruition. Paseo Estero and Visa Estero at Brooklyn Basin are best practice models for bringing much-needed affordable housing to a major metropolis: a prime city site transforms Oakland’s waterfront with an intentionally designed mixed-use, mixed-income, intergenerational and inclusionary community that is highly livable, highly walkable, beautifully designed — and will be an asset for generations to come! Join us for the Groundbreaking of Paseo Estero and Vista Estero, part of EBHO’s Affordable Housing Week.
Thursday May 16th – Edwina Benner Plaza Grand Opening, 11am-1pm
Come celebrate the completion of Edwina Benner Plaza, 66 affordable apartments for families in Sunnyvale. Edwina Benner Plaza helps address the pressing need for affordable housing in one of the nation’s most expensive housing markets by providing 66 affordable rental apartments for households earning up to 60% of Santa Clara County area median income. Thirteen units are reserved for families that are currently homeless and another 10 are reserved for families at risk of homelessness. The community is named in honor of Edwina Benner, who served as Sunnyvale mayor – and California’s first female mayor – from 1924 to 1926. She served again as mayor in 1938-40. Join us for the Grand Opening program and Ribbon Cutting Celebration, part of SV@Home’s Affordable Housing Week.
