Nellie Hannon Gateway will provide 90 affordable rental apartments serving low-income households above community-serving commercial space. A link to: ECAP, a nonprofit food assistance program that has been serving the community from this site for many years, will occupy the commercial space on the ground floor.
The new development will be a seven-story building with a mix of studios, one-, two-, and three-bedroom apartments. 100% of the apartments will be designated for households earning less than 60% of the area median income, except for one manager’s unit. 43% of the apartments will be reserved for homeless households. Supportive services will be provided on-site to ensure the long-term housing stabilization for all residents.
ECAP is a volunteer-run, nonprofit organization that supports the health and well-being of our community by providing nutritious food, warm coats and blankets, household items, information and referral services to help under-served in Emeryville and surrounding communities. It was founded in 1985 by former Emeryville Councilmember Nellie Hannon who recognized the lack of services available to poverty-stricken Emeryville residents. Since then, it has grown to serve more than 300 families daily by providing free produce, meat, canned goods, bread, and packaged foods.
RCD is committed to preserving ECAP’s ability to promote food security in the community. A brand-new retail space for ECAP will be located on the ground floor along San Pablo Avenue. It will include a convenient location for food pickup, as well as cold storage, a prep kitchen, and office space.
Apartment Mix: 90 apartments with 27 studios, 42 one-bedrooms, 15 two-bedrooms and 5 three-bedrooms
Amenities: The property will include a large, third-level landscaped courtyard, a community room, secure automobile and bike parking, on-site property management and resident services offices.
