Altamira Family Apartments is located at the southern gateway of the City of Sonoma. The site was identified as an affordable housing opportunity site in the City of Sonoma Housing Element. SAHA was selected to be the developer of this affordable family community in January of 2016. After close to a two-year community engagement process, Altamira received full city planning approvals in February 2018. Altamira will provide 48-units of 100% affordable housing for families from Sonoma County. The site has eight residential buildings with one-, two-, and three-bedroom apartments as well as a single community building with community room, offices, covered bicycle storage and laundry facilities. Extra attention has been paid to the landscaping of this site through the use of an open space in the central portion of the site, children’s playground, bay friendly landscaping and mature trees and shrubs to enhance privacy and overall comfort for the existing neighbors and new residents.
