Open Doors


Open Doors was the first affordable rental housing community for low-income families in Los Gatos. The development was sponsored by West Valley Open Doors, a local non-profit housing advocacy organization, and MidPen Housing obtained the land in 1991 through an exchange with the Community Hospital of Los Gatos-Saratoga. When the community opened in 1993, one-third of the residents were employed at the hospital. The townhouses and apartments are constructed to resemble single-family homes, and the pinwheel design around a central green helps to create a sense of community. Open Doors received a Gold Nugget Award of Merit for Best Affordable Housing at the Pacific Coast Builders Conference.
