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. In January 2016, SAHA was selected to be the developer of this affordable family community. After a two-year community engagement process, Altamira received full approval from city planning 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, with open space central to the property, children’s playground, bay-friendly landscaping and mature trees and shrubs to enhance privacy and overall comfort for the existing neighbors and new residents.
