Monarch presents a unique opportunity to increase the City of Oakland’s supply of much needed affordable housing for low-income senior households. SAHA is developing the property with a new rental housing community consisting of 51 apartments affordable to low and extremely low-income seniors aged 62+. Thirteen units will be set aside for extremely low-income seniors at risk of homelessness and an additional 13 units will be reserved for low-income senior veterans.

Residents will enjoy beautifully designed common spaces and a robust selection of on‐site services to support wellness, inependent living, and aging-in-place. The residential development is a new five-story building comprised of wood frame structure over a concrete podium parking garage. Ground level spaces include an entry lobby, a large community room with a full kitchen, offices for supportive services and property management, a large outdoor open space, and an enclosed garage with 13 parking spaces. Upper floors feature a mix of 13 studio and 38 one-bedroom residential units, as well as a fourth-floor fitness room that opens up to a landscaped community terrace.

SAHA began construction in July of 2019 and anticipates completion in December 2020.

SAHA is working with New World Mosaics to install a mosaic art installation at Monarch this summer. Learn about the community engagement process and check out the final design here.
