Dr. Kenneth Anderson Senior Apartments
1003 East 15th Street, Oakland, California
Community Type: Senior
Eden Housing is excited to partner with Williams Chapel Baptist Church on the Dr. Kenneth Anderson Senior Housing development in the Clinton neighborhood of Oakland. This new construction infill project will convert an underutilized church parking lot into 66 one-bedroom units of much-needed permanent housing for low-income seniors earning between 30% and 60% of the Area Median Income (AMI). The Clinton neighborhood is part of the International Boulevard Transit-Oriented Development Plan Area, which calls for a 9.5-mile bus rapid transit corridor that will connect downtown Oakland to the San Leandro BART Station. This transit-oriented development is less than a block from the 10th Avenue and International Boulevard Bus Rapid Transit Station. Eden Housing submitted an SB35 entitlement application in early 2022 and received full entitlements for the project in October 2022.
The site is a parking lot owned by Williams Chapel Baptist Church. The proposed building is five stories – three stories of residential (Type V construction) over a two-story parking podium (Type I construction). Amenities include a community room, laundry, internet, computer room, and an exterior courtyard. Residents will have easy access to high-quality transit, not only from the existing bus services, but also from the planned bus rapid transit station at 10th Ave and International Blvd, less than a half block away. Eden Housing Resident Services, Inc. (EHRSI) will provide service coordination services free-of-charge to all residents. The Alameda County Health Care Services Agency (HCSA) will provide on-going financial support for services targeting homeless households.
The development is a partnership between two non-profit entities, Williams Chapel and Eden Housing, Inc. Eden will ground-lease the site land from Williams Chapel Baptist Church. Once the development is built, the church will own the replacement parking, while a limited partnership entity controlled by Eden will own the residential space.
