After years of behind the scenes work and collaborations between the Sacramento Housing and Redevelopment Agency, Itasker Hollins Community Economic Development Corporation and development partner Related California, a new affordable senior housing development on 39th street and Broadway began construction on July 28.
The new housing development in Oak Park is designed for seniors who are 62 years old or older and is located across the street from senior housing The Arbors.
“Projects like this don’t just provide a roof over these seniors’ heads, they provide a community,” said Sacramento Mayor Darrell Steinberg in a press release from Related California.
The 39th and Broadway development will be a three-story building that will include 43 units with 36 one-bedroom apartments and seven studio apartments. Twelve out of the 43 units will serve formerly homeless seniors whose rents will be subsidized by what is called a project-based rental assistance contract, according to Pastor Itasker Hollins Jr. of All Nations Church of God in Christ.
