Construction begins on Acts mixed-use complex in Oakland, California

Construction has begun on a 55-unit, fairly affordable, Acts mixed-use complex in Oakland, California that features a community-serving health clinic on the ground level run by La Clinica de La Raza.

Through the “Better Neighborhoods, Same Neighbors” Initiative, this transformative community is part of a wider initiative to encourage fair and climate-sustaining activity in the surrounding area. The new building joins the US$30 million Acts Cyrene Apartments, a 59-unit affordable housing project that debuted in 2017. This project has been in the works for almost a decade, thanks to the leadership of Acts Community Development Corporation.

This multifaceted Acts mixed-use complex in Oakland project will act as a community hub for people, housing, and services, meeting the various needs of Oakland families, with a focus on homeless housing. The project would deliver 55 stable rental units to deep East Oakland for long-term residents earning 20-50 percent of Area Median Income (AMI), with a 25% set aside for homeless households earning 20-30 percent of AMI.

The project is part of the California Strategic Growth Council’s Transformative Climate Communities Program, which is funded by California Climate Investments as part of the US$28.2 million “Better Neighborhoods, Same Neighbors” program, a statewide effort that invests billions of dollars in Cap-and-Trade funds in lowering greenhouse gas emissions, boosting the economy, and enhancing public health and the environment, notably in low-income neighborhoods.

“Congratulations to Related California, Acts Community Development Corporation, the City of Oakland, and all of the partners who made the groundbreaking possible through this innovative private-public partnership. We are inspired by the commitment to fully embrace the ‘Better Neighborhoods, Same Neighbors’ vision for a healthy and resilient community by collaborating with La Clinica to incorporate a health clinic into the community’s development “Lynn von Koch-Liebert, Executive Director of the California Strategic Growth Council, made the following statement.
