Palo Alto Gardens


The residents of Palo Alto Gardens organized and lobbied their elected officials to have MidPen Housing Corp. acquire the affordable housing community when it was at risk of turning into market rate rental housing in pricey Palo Alto. With assistance from funders, MidPen took over development and management of the community and began rehabilitation. Palo Alto Gardens received updated the interiors of the units and certain structural improvements to the buildings. More parking as well as a maintenance shop was added for resident use. In addition, the community room was expanded.
