St. Joseph's Adaptive Re-use

Come and participate in a discussion of the adaptive re-use of the Historic St. Joseph's complex located on International Boulevard in Oakland. The project includes affordable senior housing, offices, affordable family rentals and first time home buyer housing.

The St. Joseph's redevelopment includes the adaptive re-use of the historic St. Joseph's building built in 1912 by the Little Sister of the Poor as home for the indigent. The 3.3 acre complex includes six existing buildings and significant landscape most of which will be incorporated into the redevelopment. The project will include 84 units of affordable senior housing, office space and senior gardens. A new 58 unit affordable family apartment building and associated open space is also planned. The remaining buildings are anticipated to include 16 first time home buyer units. Financing is anticipated to include tax credits, historic tax credits, proposition 1-C infrastructure funds and local City of Oakland Subsidies.
