Reflecting & Rejoicing Celebrating 60 Years of Impact »


The Unity Council Real Estate Development team works to increase and preserve the affordability of the neighborhoods in which we operate. Although providing housing – through new construction and preserving existing properties – is our priority, we welcome opportunities to include community and commercial spaces within projects. TUC understands that economic opportunities are just as significant as housing options and that our community partners are critical to our client’s success.

Our highly skilled team has experience in all phases of project development, including site acquisition, managing design, and entitlements, securing project financing, and overseeing construction completion. Each potential development site is evaluated carefully to ensure it is located near quality-of-life amenities such as transit, schools, health clinics, parks, and shopping.

On every project, the architectural team is carefully selected to ensure it has the right design aesthetic for the surrounding neighborhood as well as the appropriate experience. As the owner, developer, and property manager, TUC is deeply committed to the long-term health, maintenance, and quality of each of our properties. We are proud that our developments have won national recognition for excellence and innovation and continue to inspire the next generation of leaders. The Fruitvale Transit Village, which opened in 2004, is the subject of several recent news articles and research reports and is still frequently cited as a transit-oriented development model.

The Unity Council’s residential portfolio includes affordable and market-rate housing for families, seniors, and special needs households. We specialize in high-density infill development and work closely with the local community to plan and design contextual buildings, which will meet the needs of neighborhood stakeholders and future residents. In addition, The Unity Council has developed over 200,000 square feet of commercial, retail, civic, and community-serving facilities, including a public library branch, charter high school, senior center, health clinic, early education center, and a career resource center.
