Alta Mira Family and Senior Housing

Property Description

Alta Mira is the quintessential transit-oriented community within walking distance to South Hayward BART. It is made up of two adjacent five-story buildings, one for families and one for seniors. They share a 10,000-square-foot courtyard with a playground, raised community gardens and picnic tables. Each building has a large community room and a computer center, and the senior building has a fitness center. The buildings sit on top of a one-level parking garage. The community is within walking distance to parks, schools and transportation.

Alta Mira was part of a master-planned development nearly a decade in the making with bold civic leadership by the City of Hayward, Eden Housing and AMCAL Housing. This successful public-private partnership redeveloped a BART parking lot and adjacent parcel into mixed-income community that includes 206 market-rate homes and a new public park directly adjacent to the site.
