A large, affordable housing project is planned for 2330 Monroe Street in the city of Santa Clara. The building, rising two to three floors, will contain 65 apartments. Units will range in size from studios to three bedrooms, twenty percent of which will be set aside for people with developmental disabilities. Freebird Development company is responsible for the development.
The site is at the intersection of Monroe Street and San Tomas Expressway. Although no rail transit is accessible in the property’s direct vicinity, numerous bus connections can be made, bringing residents to different areas throughout the region.
