100 38th Street Supportive and Family Apartments

Property Description

The 100 38th Street development team envisions bringing new life to the former Richmond Health Center, restoring this architecturally intriguing structure as a community asset, and supporting the revitalization of the MacDonald Avenue gateway to downtown Richmond. The development will repurpose much of the existing surface parking as a series of open spaces that engage the public and bring new life to a plaza that is shared with the Courthouse and highlight the architectural features of the former Health Center. In addition, this repurposing will create an opportunity site for a 76-unit new structure with ground-level childcare center managed by the YMCA of the East Bay, and affordable apartments above that will be separately financed.

The apartments are on a three acre site with a play area for both residents and the YMCA, a new interior courtyard, community room, podium-level terraces, community garden, laundry rooms, and underground and surface parking. The scope of work includes:
