Meta Housing has broken ground on Beacon Villa Apartments, a 54-unit affordable, mixed-use community for low-income families and individuals in the East Bay submarket of Pittsburg, California.

According to Kasey Burke, President at Meta Housing, the property will cater to the needs of the city by also providing units designated as permanent supportive housing for individuals experiencing homelessness.

“In addition to filing a deep need in the Greater Bay Area for affordable and permanent supportive housing, each of our projects are developed with our residents in mind. We work hard to foster environments that improve residents’ daily lives,” says Burke. “One way that we do this is by building projects that are located near transportation hubs. This project’s location offers proximity to transit-oriented options such as the Antioch-Pittsburg train station and provides a more affordable and sustainable alternative to metropolitan rental pricing.”

The energy-efficient development will be located on a 2.4-acre site and will be comprised of five buildings, including one mixed-use building that will feature 2,800 square-feet of ground floor commercial retail and office space.

Beacon Villa will offer one-, two-, three, and four-bedroom townhome style units that include fully equipped kitchens and bathrooms, 106 on-site parking spaces and 42 bicycle parking stalls.

Additional onsite amenities will include a community room, tot lot, bicycle repair station, fitness facility, on-site manager with manager’s office and an onsite laundry room.

The property is located at 505 West 10th Street in Pittsburg, California.
