The new construction redevelopment of Shorebreeze Apartments is the result of a visionary partnership between MidPen Housing, the City of Mountain View, and other housing leaders. Shorebreeze, which consisted of 120 units for families and seniors, was originally built in 1980 and MidPen Housing acquired the community in 1997. In evaluating the need for more affordable housing solutions in Silicon Valley, MidPen saw an opportunity to provide more homes for low income residents by increasing density within Shorebreeze’s original footprint. A total of 62 new affordable apartment homes will be constructed, replacing 12 townhomes. Construction began in spring 2019/ Qualifying households who are temporarily relocated will receive priority to return when construction completes in summer 2020. Additionally, new residents will be income qualified with a Mountain View live-work preference, and 20 apartments set aside for households at risk of homelessness.
