April 3, 2019 – RE-DEDICATION - Washington Creek and Corona Ranch Apartments in Petaluma: Join us for the re-dedication of Corona Ranch and Washington Creek, both located in Petaluma. Together these properties provide an affordable home to 106 families. Both received a significant facelift including new roofs and windows, efficiency upgrades such as installation of solar photovoltaics and solar thermal panels, upgrades to plumbing and electrical systems, new paint, plantings, upgraded play areas and much more. RSVP here.

April 23, 2019 – RE-DEDICATION - Stoney Creek Apartments in Livermore: Back in 1992, Stoney Creek transformed five acres of vacant land into a neighborhood cluster of homes where children can safely play and parents can enjoy the quiet of a quality environment in their affordable homes. Today the property has undergone a significant rehab, not only to make site improvements but also to ensure the longevity of affordable housing for Eden’s residents. Improvements included new roofs and siding, replacement of windows and sliding doors, solar installation, additions of drought tolerant landscaping, updating to most units to include accessibility features, replacing and upgrades to all interior finishes and much more.

Stoney Creek will also now include three units for homeless families referred by the City of Livermore’s CityServe. When the next five units become available, they will be offered either to homeless families or Transitional Age Youth (TAY), a particularly vulnerable population. This program allows young adults to secure affordable housing, and recognize their strengths and abilities to successfully gain independence and self–sufficiency in the community. Eden is excited to serve these communities at Stoney Creek. RSVP here.

May 10, 2019 – RE-DEDICATION - Wheeler Manor Apartments in Gilroy: Wheeler Manor is on the National Register of Historic Places. The building was constructed in 1929 to serve as a community hospital and remained in operation through 1989. When it was built in 1929, the Wheeler Hospital was the only hospital in the state to be equipped with nurse call buttons in the patient rooms. While the hospital has since been converted to 22 affordable housing apartments for seniors, the apartments still have an emergency call system, which is being upgraded through the rehabilitation project.

Wheeler Manor which added the newer Building B, opened as a senior housing complex in 1993, with 110 apartments. Important historical components of Wheeler Hospital were retained during the renovation, including the original foundation and walls, clay tile roof, double hung windows, arched entrance and tile inlay. The rehabilitation added seven new units by adaptively using former office space, bringing the total to 117 apartments, and a new satellite senior health center operated by On Lok, which joins Live Oak Adult Day Care in offering vital services onsite. In ten years, this classic building will celebrate 100 years of service to the citizens of Gilroy. RSVP here.

May 13, 2019 – GRAND OPENING - Hana Gardens Apartments in El Cerrito: The City of El Cerrito and Eden Housing are proud to partner on Hana Gardens, 62 units of new affordable housing for seniors in El Cerrito. We are also honoring the Japanese who were interned during World War II by preserving the character of the Contra Costa Florist building, interpretive panels and a beautiful Japanese Heritage Plaza.

The four-story, 63-unit senior affordable housing development, includes 1,997 square feet of street-level commercial space which Eden has leased to the El Cerrito Senior Center. The public spaces were inspired by the single-story Contra Costa Florist building at 10848 San Pablo Avenue, which Eden renovated in line with the building’s original design. This property includes Heritage Plaza- a beautiful public courtyard that honors the rich history of the Japanese American influence on the commercial flower industry. “Hana” is often translated from Japanese into English as “flower.” Save the date – stay tuned for more info.

The development has a unique financing structure (9% tax credit and 4% tax credit hybrid) that required significant coordination and partnership among all public and private partners.
