Satellite Central, a 150 unit high-rise senior community, originally opened in early 1970.  Satellite Central is located in the heart of Downtown Oakland and a short walk from the 19th Street BART Station. It features 75 studios, 41 jumbo studios and 34 one-bedroom units.  Residents are welcome to use the various community spaces including the furnished outdoor patio, large community room, laundry facilities and multipurpose room.  Satellite Central’s rehabilitation began in January 2012 and included a complete make-over of the exterior, renovation and expansion of the interior common spaces, and accessibility and seismic upgrades, all while maintaining full building occupancy.
