A new multi-family residential community has been approved for development on a county-owned property between State Route 4, Bailey Road, East Leland Road, and Ambrose Park in Contra Costa County. The project proposal includes the construction of a residential community offering affordable units, retail space, and a public library.

Pacific West Communities of Idaho is the project developer.

The project site is a parcel spanning an area of seven acres. Named Bay Point, the project will bring 384 residences with various levels of affordability; 38 set aside for affordable to extremely low-income households, 38 for very low-income households and 304 for low-income households earning 30% to 80% of the area’s median income (AMI). For apartments built in the first phase, households with 30% of AMI will pay about $670 for a one-bedroom apartment or $1,893 if they earned 80% of AMI. The project also will include 11,558 square feet of commercial retail space and a 20,000-square-foot county library. The library is projected to cost $4.2 million to build.

Construction will happen in three phases. The first phase calls for the sale of 3.3 acres of county land to Pacific West Communities for nearly $1.79 million — including a loan to the developer — to build 150 apartments and the library, which is now housed at Riverview Middle School and only open during school hours.

In total, the land for the three phases has been assessed at $4.6 million. The county acquired the property using the former Contra Costa Redevelopment Agency’s Low-and-Moderate-Income Housing Fund, capital tax allocation bonds, and capital tax increment.

The site is within the Pittsburg/Bay Point BART Station Area Specific Plan and is designated as a high-density transit-oriented development.
