The Altenheim (German for “Elder’s Home”) is a former senior assisted living facility on a six-acre campus in the City of Oakland’s Dimond/Glenview district. The community was founded in the 1890s by immigrants from German-speaking countries, received the Partners in Preservation Award from the Oakland Heritage Alliance in 2007, and is now on the National Register of Historic Places.

Phase I of the renovation project, completed in 2006, restored the beautiful campus and grounds, creating 93 studio and one-bedroom apartments in the existing historic buildings and over 10,000 square feet of community space that houses on site supportive services, community and creative programs for residents. The second phase of this development consists of three new buildings that complement and integrate with the historic structures and provide 81 additional senior apartments.

The Altenheim was developed by Citizens Housing Corporation and recently transferred to Eden Housing, Inc. for completion. The newly restored campus consists of 174 beautiful, brand-new affordable apartments for senior households earning 20% to 50% of Area Median Income.

Affordability Mix: 
All units are affordable to households earning 20% - 50% of the Area Median Income.
