Meta Housing, in a joint venture partnership with Western Community Housing, Inc., has announced the completion of The Cannery at Lewis Street, a four-story, 104-unit affordable apartment community in Gilroy, California.

“The relationship between income and housing affordability remains a major issue for families across California,” says Kasey Burke, President at Meta Housing. “In San Jose, a resident would have to make $54.60 per hour to afford a two-bedroom home.  This is something that is not easily attainable for many residents throughout Santa Clara County, a county part of the notoriously expensive Bay Area, driving an increased need for affordably priced housing throughout the region.”

Burke explains that this apartment community aids in providing exceptionally high-quality housing that residents of the community can afford.

“Our niche focus on affordable housing allows us to partner with cities to create communities that truly cater to the needs of that city,” says Burke. “This project is no exception.”

The Cannery at Lewis Street is located near the Gilroy train station and in walking distance to the historic Monterey Street shopping center.

“In addition to filing a need in the community for affordable housing, each of our projects are constructed with our residents in mind. We want to create environments that improve their daily lives and that includes walkability,” says Burke. “The apartment community’s location near major transit and local retail enhances access to local amenities for residents.”

The property features indoor and outdoor exercise areas, a roof-top deck, a dog park, and children’s play area, among other amenities. It is also built to LEED, Build It Green, and CA Title 24 Standards.

The Cannery at Lewis Street is located at 111 Lewis Street in Gilroy, California
