Construction is rising for the new six-story senior housing facility at 2000 Dwight Way in South Berkeley, Alameda County. With the concrete podium at the second floor, crews aim to open by the Spring of 2024 with 113 units and associated amenities. MorningStar Senior Living and BayRock Multifamily are partnering for the development.
The six-story corner building will yield 84,830 square feet with 88 assisted living suites and 25 memory care suites. Unit sizes will vary with studios, one-bedrooms, and two-bedrooms. Residents can access personalized support, including activities, 24-hour staffing, and full-time licensed nurses on-site. On-site amenities will include a fitness center, therapy room, theater, courtyard, and sky terrace.
Trachtenberg Architects is responsible for the design, while Thoma-Holec Design will oversee the interiors. DCI Construction is the project’s general contractor. The project design is familiar within the Trachtenberg portfolio, with an earthy palette of brick, plaster, and wood enriched with iron Juliette balcony railing and planters. The streetscape will be improved with greenery and trees.
The property is located at the corner of Dwight Way and Milvia Street by retail-rich Shattuck Avenue. The Alta Bates Summit Medical center and Sutter Urgent Care centers are located across the street. Downtown Berkeley BART station is just over ten minutes away on foot, with AC Transit buses along Shattuck providing direct transit to the city’s growing urban core.
MorningStar Senior Living is a religious senior housing provider based in Colorado, with properties in 11 states across the United States, including five others across California. The three levels of care include independent living, assisted living, and memory care.

Hideous building. Why is there a houseboat on top? I don’t think they’re even trying at this point.
What houseboat are you talking about?
