Winter 2013

Preserving a Part of
Oakland's Past

More than 200 people came to celebrate the grand opening of St. Joseph’s Senior Apartments, the centerpiece of an ambitious project to preserve a beautiful historic landmark as part of a neighborhood-wide revitalization effort. Reclamation and repurposing of the 1913 Georgian Revival building has created 83 new affordable rental apartments for low-income seniors.
