Parrott Street Apartments
Located on the corner of Parrott Street and San Leandro Boulevard, Parrott Street Apartments is a new apartment community that will contribute to the City of San Leandro’s vision for a vibrant downtown with a high quality affordable housing development for lower-income households. In this excellent location across the street from the San Leandro BART station, we propose to build 62 rental apartments for individuals and households earning between 20% and 60% of the area median income, equivalent to an annual income of $20,000 to $60,000 for a two-person household.
Parrott Street Apartments will provide homes to households that are in threat of being priced out of the housing market, but are essential to a strong and diverse community, including the lower-income workforce and veterans. Parrott Street Apartments will set aside approximately half of the units for homeless and lower-income veterans with the help of HUD-VASH subsidy and the state’s Veterans Housing and Homelessness Prevention funding program.
Parrott Street Apartments is designed as a single five-story building with 62 apartments which include a mix of studios, one-bedroom units, and two-bedroom units. One of the units will be set aside for a live-in property manager, which will help ensure that the property is well managed every day and night. Additionally, the ground level of the building includes a property management office for the full-time property manager, as well as an office for a resident services coordinator who will provide myriad services – such as wellness, career, education, and financial literacy programming – to help ensure our residents succeed.
The building is designed with sustainability in mind, with solar panels on the roof, low-flow water fixtures, Energy Star appliances, and dedicated bike parking, and will be Green Point Rated certified. The property also includes amenities such as a computer learning center, community room, laundry facilities, and an outdoor courtyard with planters for growing fruits and vegetables.
