Pauline Weaver Senior Apartments, Honoring a Housing Advocate
May 17 @ 11:30 am - 2:00 pm
The City of Fremont and Eden Housing are proud to partner on the development of Pauline Weaver Senior Apartments, a new 90-unit development for very low and extremely low income seniors located in the Warm Springs Area of Fremont, California. The community serves seniors who earn between 30% and 50% of the Area Median Income (AMI). 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. Financing is provided by the City of Fremont, Housing Authority of the County of Alameda, Enterprise Housing Credit Investments and Morgan Stanley, JPMorgan Chase Bank, California Tax Credit Allocation Committee and California Debt Limit Allocation Committee. The new affordable community provides 89 one- and two-bedroom rental apartment homes for seniors within a block of the amenity-rich Mission Boulevard corridor between I-880 and I-680. The four story development includes a community room with a kitchen, a common courtyard with BBQs and community gardens, a computer lab, and bike storage. The development is part of Fremont’s broader Mission Falls master-planned community, which will include approximately 500 units of senior residential housing and a senior community center. Pauline Weaver, the property namesake, is a longtime advocate for affordable housing in California. She has been on the Eden Housing Board of Directors since joining in 1988. Pauline was an Assistant Public Defender in Alameda County and the past president of both the National Conference of Women’s Bar Association and California Women Lawyers. The goal of this event is to showcase the unique design of this property and celebrate our partnerships, residents and community. We hope to welcome partners that were vital to the completion of this project, city officials, local public representatives, Eden staff, residents and local community members to the event.
