The City of Sacramento is crafting a new vision of economic vibrancy and revitalization for Stockton Boulevard — and more affordable housing will play a big role.
In September, the city announced plans for a vacant 8-acre lot on Stockton Boulevard — near West Campus High School — to become the location for 200 new affordable housing units. The project is expected to be completed in January 2024 and will become nonprofit developer Mercy Housing California’s largest development in the region. Mercy Housing in collaboration with the city and the Sacramento Housing and Redevelopment Agency are spearheading the $15 million project.
“These 200 units are part of the city’s nearly 800 affordable units starting or under construction right now,” said Sacramento’s Housing Policy Manager Danielle Foster in a news release about the project. “And they are the first of almost 1,400 planned for the Stockton Boulevard area, which will mostly be affordable and rental housing to help provide affordable options for the local workforce and existing residents.”
