We are proud to announce our progress during the COVID 19 pandemic. On Friday (6/12/20), we supported Eden Housing in breaking ground on their new ground-up transit oriented development – the Parrott Street Apartments project. We’re working in conjunction with Lowney Architecture and Eden to build 62 units on a 0.46 acre lot directly adjacent to BART. Located at the corner of San Leandro Boulevard and Parrott Street, it will positively impact our neighbors here in the Bay Area and continue to make a dent in providing more safe, decent and affordable multi-family housing.
Due to the pandemic, attendance at the groundbreaking was limited for safety’s sake and to ensure the requisite physical distancing. Linda Mandolini – Eden Housing President, Assembly Member Rob Bonta, Councilmember Deborah Cox and Sean Callum, Eden Housing Board Member all spent a few moments at the podium and shoveling a little dirt. See the live event here:
Keep checking back for progress photos and announcements of the grand opening next year, where I’m sure all the dignitaries will assemble again, hopefully without masks and distancing!
On January 30, 2019 BBI fielded 10 people to help with the bi-annual homeless people count in Alameda County. The Point-in-Time count is organized by EveryOneHome, a county wide collaborative organization that is working to end homelessness in Alameda County. We all got an early 5:00 AM start and walked or drove precincts all over the county to count each homeless person. A job well done!
