HAYWARD, CA – Eden Housing announces that Andrea Osgood has been promoted to Senior Vice President of Real Estate Development.
Prior to Andrea’s promotion, she has been serving as Interim Department Manager. She is responsible for Eden’s new business and pre-development pipeline, new construction, real estate acquisition and portfolio renovation efforts. Under her leadership, Eden currently has a pipeline totaling 3,150 homes across 39 properties, including new construction and portfolio recapitalization projects.
Since joining Eden’s development team in 2008, Andrea has overseen the development of over 2,500 new units and the acquisition of over 1,500 existing units in six California counties – from Sonoma to San Diego County. She is currently managing Eden’s expansion into new regions in California, with a growing department of 27 development professionals.
“Eden continues to focus on how we can better meet the needs of the communities we serve by building and preserving more affordable homes throughout California,” said Linda Mandolini, President and CEO of Eden Housing. “Andrea brings a wealth of experience and dedication to her new role and will lead our strong team of developers as we continue to work to provide sustainable affordable housing solutions.”
“Housing instability for low-income Californians has been exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic. California needs to create 1.8 million new housing units by 2025, but is only producing 80,000 units each year,” said Andrea Osgood. “I’m proud to continue leading Eden’s Real Estate Development Department as we tackle affordable housing from all angles and work to house our neighbors.”
Andrea has significant experience in construction management, construction litigation and public contracting. She worked as a construction management consultant for Capital Projects of UC Berkeley where she was involved in large rehab and new construction projects – from planning and development through funding and construction. Additionally, she was the lead paralegal in the construction group at Hanson Bridgett Marcus Vlahos & Rudy, a San Francisco law firm.
Andrea serves as President of the Housing Leadership Council of San Mateo County, where she has served as a board member since 2013, and is an inaugural board member and Treasurer of SV@Home, a housing advocacy organization in Santa Clara County.
Andrea Osgood earned her Bachelor of Arts (BA) with Honors from Pomona College and a Master of Arts in Urban Planning from the UCLA Graduate School of Public Policy and Social Research.
