Affordable senior housing that enhances the urban fabric while building relationships in the local community.

Situated near downtown Oakland, 14th Street Affordable Housing is an affordable senior living development designed to expand and add additional amenities to the existing Oak Center Towers Senior Community. The massing of the new buildings helps to transition architecturally from the existing modern towers to the small-scale Victorian houses on the other side of the block. The design thoughtfully renovates and incorporates the existing Greater Cooper AME Zion Church building and allows the residents and parishioners to share a common courtyard, meeting spaces and other amenities. At the corner of 14th Street and Market Street, a neighborhood café space and courtyard will provide a community gathering space for both residents and the larger community.
