PROJECT DESCRIPTION

The current city-owned redevelopment sites consists of two parcels with a total of 235 surface parking stalls. The project proposes to utilize the provisions of AB 1763, which allows for increased building height and density for housing developments located within a half-mile of a major transit stop and offering 100 percent of the total units to lower income households. The project as proposed consists of two buildings located on adjacent parcels; a seven-story residential building comprised of 225 affordable rental units at 480 E. 4th Avenue; and a five-level, above-ground parking garage located at 400 E. 5th Avenue that will provide a minimum of 164 private residential parking stalls and 532 public parking stalls. The City Council selected MidPen Housing Corporation through a competitive RFP process in April 2018, to develop these sites.
