Governor Gavin Newsom sanctioned a $12 billion bill to tackle the housing affordability crisis. On July 19, 2021, in Sonoma County, Newsom highlighted his California Comeback Plan’s investments to propel the plans to construct affordable housing, helping tens of thousands of affected people in California.
Alliant Capital has announced the $30 million investment has closed, progressing plans to build the 151-unit affordable housing project at 450 Kawana Springs Road in Santa Rosa, Sonoma County. The 60-foot project will bring a new hub of medium-high density residential living immediately opposite the large Santa Rosa Market Place shopping center inside the Mendocino / Santa Rosa Avenue Priority Development Area. Kawana Springs also provides housing for residents displaced by the 2017 wildfires.
This week, the biggest little permits include over sixty additional dwelling units, a 30,000 square foot new medical facility in Alameda, new monuments in Sacramento, and even a treehouse in Palo Alto. At this pace, over three thousand ADU’s would be produced within a year. Along with ADU’s, nineteen new single-family houses were applied for and thirty-four Tesla power walls across the counties. Perhaps the most surprising was a two-story additional dwelling unit in Palo Alto with an estimated construction price of nearly $1.4 million. If ever there was a point where an ADU became just another single-family house, this might be a contender.
