Project Summary

Monarch Homes, formerly known as 3268 San Pablo, is an affordable rental housing development of 51 apartments for low-income seniors. It is located on a 0.26-acre infill site along a major transit corridor in West Oakland, adjacent to another SAHA housing property, St. Andrews Manor.

The building is a five-story wood-frame structure over a concrete podium parking garage. Ground-level spaces include an entry lobby, a large community room with a full kitchen, offices for supportive services and property management, a large outdoor open space, and an enclosed garage with 13 parking spaces. Upper floors feature a mix of 13 studio and 38 one-bedroom residential units, as well as a fourth-floor fitness room that opens up to a landscaped community terrace.
