Property Description

Corsair Flats is the first building constructed as part of the Alameda Point Site master development. The new homes for seniors are built on the historic former Naval Air Station base with beautiful views of the Bay.

The community has four floors, all with elevator access. The ground floor has a community room with a kitchen, a computer lab, on-site laundry facilities, bike storage, community gardens and a courtyard with seating areas.

The path to redevelopment was started in 1997 when the Navy suspended operations. Ten years later, the Navy relinquished control to the City of Alameda. The 68-acre site is set to include a total of 800 mixed-income housing units with retail and office space, as well as new streets, sidewalks, parks and a ferry terminal. Eden Housing is constructing the neighboring Alameda Point Family apartments with 70 affordable homes.

Corsair Flats provides 60 homes for seniors with 30 set aside for unhoused people, including 28 home for veterans who have experienced homelessness in the past. Supportive services will be provided through a collaboration between Operation Dignity, Eden Housing Resident Services, Inc. and the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs.
