Affordable Housing & Senior Housing
Affordable Apartments at the Fruitvale Village
Fruitvale Village is a “mixed-use” development, meaning that space is used by office, retail and residential tenants. The ground floor of Fruitvale Village is home to locally-owned retail spaces. The second floor offers Office spaces for important community resources and organizations. Finally, 47 one- and two-bedroom apartments offer housing on the third floor. Of the 47 units, 10 are designated as affordable units for residents earning between 35 – 80% of the Area Median Income.
There is a waitlist for affordable apartments at the Fruitvale Village. The waiting list is currently closed. We will update this page of our website when the waitlist opens in the future, and notify community agencies and the local media.
