It was a proud day for Wakeland Housing and San Diego yesterday as the community came together to break ground for the Atmosphere, a new construction affordable housing community located in an infrastructure-rich area of the downtown. The 205 affordable housing residences (studios, one-, two- and three-bedroom units) will be a model for integrating residents and includes 51 apartments set aside as supportive housing for those with special needs.
CSH was instrumental in making this project happen with predevelopment and construction loans, and the technical assistance provided by our San Diego office.
Slated for completion in 2017, this urban infill will revitalize a vacant partial city block with a vibrant new housing community to meet the strong need for affordable family housing while also providing homes for special needs individuals. The apartments are for individuals and families earning up to 60% of the area median income (AMI), with some units restricted to 30% AMI and below.
Residents at the Atmosphere will have access to Wakeland’s comprehensive Resident Services programming plus an array of on-site and off-site supportive services focused on special needs.
