“We are very proud of the Loro Landing development, which is yet another example of the positive impact Measure A1 has had in creating permanent affordable housing,” said Supervisor Dave Brown, Alameda County Board of Supervisors. “The Board has very worked hard to put this measure into effect to address the lack of affordable housing and prevent displacement of our low-income households, which include veterans.”

“We are delighted to see this project come to fruition and welcome the first wave of residents to Loro Landing,” says Linda Mandolini, President of Eden Housing. “We are proud of this beautiful development that will provide housing to some of the most vulnerable members of our community. We appreciate the support of the citizens of San Leandro and all who came together to make this important project a reality.”
