Linda Tunis Senior Housing and Event Center
PEP Housing is acquiring the North Bay Assembly Buildings at 600 Acacia Lane in Santa Rosa. We will rehab the 20,400 square foot assembly building and build 20 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. Approximately 50% of the building will be retained with existing uses including a commercial kitchen, dining room and meeting rooms. We anticipate using the event space for resident activities and community event space.
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.
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 November 2019. To date, Kaiser has supported the project with a $1,000,000 gift, Rotary 5130 with a $50,000 gift and the Bethlehem Foundation with a $250,000 gift.
951 Petaluma Blvd. South – River City Senior Apartments
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. PEP will be updating information as the pre-development continues.
