– The Housing Authority of the City of Alameda (AHA) is breaking ground on a re-development project at Rosefield Village. AHA has owned Rosefield Village since 1956 and will oversee all aspects of the re-development. When construction is completed in mid-2022, the site density will have increased from 53 units to 92 units.
Located at 727 Buena Vista Ave., with convenient access to services and public transportation, Rosefield Village, is a mixed income family housing development that offers affordable housing options for Alameda’s low-income residents. In addition, Alameda Unified School District (AUSD) employees who earn 20% to 80% of the area’s median income will be eligible to apply to live in the apartments.
“By increasing site density at Rosefield Village, the Housing Authority can continue its mission of providing affordable housing options for Alameda’s low-income residents and the synergy with AUSD makes this project even more impactful for Alamedans.” stated Vanessa Cooper AHA Executive Director.
