Weinreb Place honors Ilene Weinreb — a community leader, affordable housing hero, and Hayward’s first female mayor — and pays testament to her longtime community service, including over 30 years on Eden’s Board of Directors. During her time as Hayward’s mayor, Weinreb helped to start Eden Housing as well as Alameda County’s 211 social service referral system, which still helps many people today.
The community provides affordable homes for active seniors. The half-acre site was donated as part of an inclusionary deal negotiated by the City and the market-rate developer of the former cannery facility. Located adjacent to Eden’s headquarters and Hayward Senior Housing, activities are coordinated for the benefit of the residents at both properties. The community is also conveniently located across the street from the Hayward BART system and within walking distance to City Hall, the library, and downtown businesses and services.
Weinreb Place features a cozy community room with a kitchen, a computer center, a library, a laundry room, bike storage room and resident’s vegetable garden. A large outdoor courtyard has a beautiful brass square plaque marking the location of the Eden Housing Time Capsule, which will be opened on Eden’s 100th anniversary.
