City of Oakland has partnered with developers to convert an existing motel to bring permanent housing units at 8471 Enterprise Way in Oakland. The project proposal includes the acquisition and rehabilitation efforts to convert an existing hotel to create 100+ permanent housing units.
The City of Oakland has teamed up with California Supportive Housing and CSH Enterprise Housing LP. Concord-based Shelter, Inc. will manage the property and provide services for the adult residents. Beyond Emancipation, an organization providing education and job support, coaching, and housing resources to current and former foster youth in Alameda County, will operate the youth program.
The developing team has secured $20,368,264 in funding for the project. Once finished, the housing complex will have 77 apartments for previously unhoused adults and 26 units for transitional-aged youth (aged 18-24, coming out of foster care systems).
CSH Enterprise Housing project will convert an existing motel to create 104 permanent housing units catered to provide housing solutions for unhoused persons or individual at the risk of housing crises. All apartments will have a bedroom, a bathroom, and a kitchenette. Eligibility criteria for the Homekey housing complex is that applicant must make no more than 30% of the area’s median income.
East Oakland’s Quality Inn is the hotel that will be converted into permanent housing. The hotel is the eighth supportive housing site opened in Oakland through the Homekey program.
