Eden Housing and the City of San Leandro announce that Loro Landing will begin accepting pre-applications on September 27. Loro Landing will provide 62 affordable homes to low-income residents, with a mix of studios, 1-bedroom, and 2-bedroom rental units. One unit will be reserved for an on-site manager. The property is conveniently located at 1604 San Leandro Blvd, San Leandro, CA 94577, within 0.1 mile of San Leandro BART station and within a few blocks of shops and other amenities in downtown San Leandro.

Up to 30 units will be available for households earning incomes between  30% of the Area Median Income (AMI) and 60% of the AMI, which translates to between $32,000 and $66,000 for a two-person household. Online pre-applications for these 30 units will be accepted online through the Alameda County Housing Portal (https://housing.acgov.org/) between 10am PT on Monday, September 27, 2021 until 4pm PT on Friday, October 8, 2021.

All pre-applications received during this initial intake period will be entered into a lottery. Individuals selected through the lottery will be emailed and/or mailed phone interview letters with prescheduled interview times. There is limited capacity for rescheduling. Applicants not contacted will be placed on the waiting list upon completion of lease-up. Residents are expected to begin moving in between December 2021 and January 2022.

31 units will be available for households referred through the Department of Veterans Affairs or Alameda County’s Coordinated Entry System.

“Eden has a proven track record in the City of San Leandro and excels in creating and sustaining high-quality affordable housing communities that advance equity and opportunity for all,” said Mayor Pauline Cutter. “We are pleased and excited to be partnering with Eden to provide these 62 much-needed affordable homes to low-income residents.”

“Eden’s longstanding partnership with the City of San Leandro goes back four decades to  one of our first developments: Eden Lodge. We are excited to expand our work in the San Leandro community and welcome the new residents at Loro Landing,” said Linda Mandolini, President and CEO of Eden Housing. “Eden is proud of our work with the City of San Leandro to forge lasting and sustainable solutions to the housing challenges we face in the region.”

The City of San Leandro contributed a $1 million loan, in addition to $4 million of the City’s allocation of Alameda County Measure A-1 loan funds.
