AFFORDABLE HOUSING PROJECT
BRIDGE Housing proposes to develop a two-phased project on a 3.6-acre site located on Golden Gate Drive adjacent to the West Dublin/Pleasanton BART Station within the Downtown Dublin Specific Plan (DDSP). The project, known as Amador Station, consists of 300 affordable residential units in two separate buildings and includes ground floor retail, amenity space, and parking. On April 20, 2021, the City Council appropriated $7.1 million in Affordable Housing Funds and authorized the commitment of $2.9 million in Measure A-1 Bond funds to BRIDGE Housing for Phase I of the Amador Station project, which consists of 136 units that would be affordable to households with incomes no greater than an average of 43% of area median income (AMI). Phase II of the Amador Station project will bring an additional 164 affordable units. In addition, the City Council authorized the reservation of 300 units from the DDSP Development Pool. On August 10, 2021, the Planning Commission approved a Site Development Review Permit for the proposed project and on September 21, 2021, the City Council approved a Community Benefit Program Agreement and an Affordable Housing Assistance Agreement. The City hopes to secure additional grant funding for Phase I of the project. On May 17, 2022, the City Council authorized the City Manager to submit an application and receive up to $3.3 million in grant funds from the State of California’s Local Housing Trust Fund (LHTF) Program.
