Mission Gateway is a mixed-use development that combines affordable family housing with 3,000 square feet of ground-floor retail. Located near the East Bay foothills, the community provides a beautiful entrance to Union City. Working with the Redevelopment Agency of Union City, MidPen Housing helped the city achieve its goals of creating new housing and business opportunities by transforming the site, once occupied by abandoned and dilapidated buildings, into the Mission Gateway community. A landscaped courtyard with space for playing and relaxing is located over the parking garage. The community building includes a hall with a kitchen, art room, computer lab, gym and resident services office. Other amenities include a barbecue area, swimming pool, children’s play area and basketball half-court.
