Sparrow Terrace (formerly known as Miles Lane) is an innovative development borne out of a collaboration between MidPen Housing and Encompass Community Services in Watsonville, CA. This partnership aims to address the community’s pressing needs for affordable housing and expanded behavioral health services. MidPen’s Sparrow Terrace will offer 72 affordable rental homes in six buildings, including a community building, complemented by a lush garden-style design with green spaces and a revitalized wetlands habitat. Thirty-five of the homes will be set aside for farmworker families, and six apartments will serve formerly homeless individuals. Sparrow Terrace began construction in mid-2022 and is expected to welcome new residents home in Summer 2024.
