Homestead Park was Sunnyvale’s first subsidized housing development and MidPen Housing’s second new development, renovated in 2001. To provide maximum open space on the ten acre site, three-story buildings with private patios or decks were constructed, a feature praised by the City of Sunnyvale’s Planning Director, who noted that more open space was provided at Homestead Park than was generally encountered in Sunnyvale. Homestead Park shares a community building with neighboring MidPen property, Moulton Plaza, which provides a community room and a computer center. There are also laundry facilities, outdoor common areas, and extensive playgrounds and lawns. Senior units are grouped together nearest to shopping and transportation, with their own laundry room and outdoor common area.
