Visionary Home Builders of California, Inc. (VHB), Stockton’s non-profit purpose built housing specialist, was awarded funding for Grand View Village - its newest affordable housing community located at Miner and San Joaquin Streets in downtown Stockton, California.
Grand View Village (GVV) will provide 75 affordable housing units for households earning between 30% and 80% of Area Median Income (AMI). This property will feature a number of green sustainable design elements including mounted solar, energy efficient appliances, and high efficiency exterior and interior lighting. Additionally, it will include over 10,000 square feet of commercial and community space for a grocery store, as well as an on-site Head Start and community center. Finally, GVV will be offering free bus passes to its residents for three years!
GVV will be a transit-oriented development, focusing on connecting the residents and surrounding community with employment providers, schools, the Downtown Regional Transit Center, and the Robert J. Cabral Train Station through enhanced transit services, new bicycle paths, and sidewalk improvements.
“We are so grateful to be a part of rebuilding our amazing community and providing new and affordable housing for those that need it!” states Carol J. Ornelas, CEO of VHB.
This new residential community will serve as the catalyst for other downtown Stockton redevelopment efforts by effectively linking new affordable housing and transportation improvements to neighborhood sports (Stockton Ballpark and Arena), recreation and entertainment (movie theatre, dining, and shops).
