More Affordable Housing Headed To This East Bay City

More Affordable Housing Headed To This East Bay City

More affordable housing could be on its way to Hayward. The planning commission recently approved plans and permits for a 240-unit complex with a mix of 192 market-rate and 48 affordable units.

The Maple & Main mixed-use 3.4-acre project from Bay Area Property Developers and Klein Financial Corp of Palo Alto will include 5,571 SF of ground-floor retail and a 462-spot parking garage to be shared with residents and businesses, according to the East Bay Times.

The affordable units will be available to very low-income families earning no more than 50% of the median income in Alameda County, which is roughly $93,600 for a family of four. Monthly rents for these units range from $914 for a one-bedroom to $1,267 for three bedrooms. Market-rate apartments will offer rent from $2,205 for a studio up to $3,400 to $3,450 for three bedrooms.

Amenities for the five-story complex will include three open courtyards, a pool, a 3,600 SF clubhouse, fitness facilities and a 6,460 SF rooftop terrace. A shuttle for residents to and from Hayward BART also will be available to help reduce the traffic impact.

The site will include a renovated 48k SF medical office building. [EBT]
