Projects in Pre-Development

Linda Tunis Senior Housing 

PEP Housing acquired the North Bay Assembly Buildings at 600 Acacia Lane in Santa Rosa.  We will rehab the 20,400 square foot assembly building and build 26 studio apartments affordable to low-income seniors for fire survivors and help towards meeting the needs of the housing shortage caused by the 2017 fires. Many seniors lost their mobile homes and are now living in substandard conditions or worse, homeless. We anticipate using the dining rooma and kitchen for resident activities and other community uses.

The project is centrally located and is within .29 miles of a pharmacy, park—.13, church—.30, cinema—.30, Howarth Park—.41 and Safeway—.98.  There are several medical and dental services available within close proximity to the project.  See the attached Google Map for amenities near the site.

The project will have a lounge for residents, a dog run, outdoor gardens and an outdoor space.  Click here to learn more.

We are trying to fund the entire project with donations from the community and foundations in order to serve fire survivors.  We hope to start construction in March 2020.  To date, Kaiser Permanente has supported the project with a lead gift of $1,000,000 gift, Bethlehem Foundation-$250,000, The Finley Foundation- $250,000, St. Josephs Health-$250,000, TriCounties Bank-$100,000, Rotary 5130- $50,000, Bank of the West-$5,000, Anonymous-$4,000.

Linda Tunis Senior Apartments has been recommended by the City of Santa Rosa Housing Authority for the Community Development Block Grant – Disaster Relief (CDBG-DR) funds and an application is making its way to California’s Housing and Community Development for final approval. In addition, the project was awarded funds from the Sonoma County Fund for Housing. When the CDBG-DR funds are approved, funding will be complete, with construction slated to begin in the fall of 2021.

951 Petaluma Blvd. South – River City Senior Apartments

Celebrating Ground-breaking by mail-August 2020

PEP Housing proposes to build River City Senior Apartments. The 1.31 acre site includes fifty-three one-bedroom units and one two-bedroom Manager’s unit. All residential units will be rented to low income seniors and senior veterans, ages 62 years and older. PEP was chosen to build Petaluma’s first ever permanent veteran housing.

This project incorporates various amenities for residents including: a community room with a full kitchen, raised garden beds, and a fenced in dog run; all of which are typical to other PEP Housing projects. Additionally, a community gazebo and outdoor patio will be available outside the community center adjacent to the river, where residents can enjoy the comfort and view of the river and the pedestrian path while allowing public access to the river. To further serve and target the senior veteran population, PEP Housing proposes that this new development incorporate a “wellness center” where healthcare professionals and community members can provide medical, dental or community services necessary for seniors to age in place.

Vacaville – Pony Express Senior Apartments 

With the support of The City of Vacaville, PEP Housing will be developing a 60-unit apartment complex for low income senior veterans. On-site features include a community room, wellness center, raised garden beds, landscaped areas with walking paths and a dog run. 

Pony Express Senior Apartments has been fully funded with a CDLAC/TCAC 4% Tax Credit Award and Multifamily Housing Program funding. We are actively working through the myriad of tasks involved in closing escrow on an affordable housing project and we look forward to breaking ground in June of 2021.

PEP will be updating information as the pre-development continues.
