On Tuesday, May 12, CCH will be celebrating the grand re-opening of Westlake Christian Terrace East, a recently renovated 200-unit complex offering affordable housing for low-income seniors. Festivities will occur between 3:00 pm and 5:00 pm as part of an Affordable Housing Week celebration sponsored by East Bay Housing Organizations (EBHO).
Built in 1968 by CCH, Westlake Christian Terrace East is among the oldest affordable housing communities in Oakland serving low income seniors. With a diverse population of residents that reflect the local community, Westlake is the flagship facility for CCH and a major hub of senior housing and services. In the past two years, all 200 apartments were upgraded with new bathrooms and kitchens. The $58 million project includes building improvements to seismic strength, energy efficiency and accessibility, and construction of 23 additional parking spaces, a computer center and new outdoor seating area.
CCH CEO and President Don Stump states, “We are truly grateful for the support received from the City of Oakland, our valued partners and investors. The project serves as an example of what is possible when invested parties collaborate to serve the greater good. Together, we have ensured that this community will continue to serve as affordable housing for the seniors of this City for the next 50 years. ”
