In line with the vision of providing safe, clean, quality affordable housing for formerly homeless people, Aurora provides a combination of social services with permanent, independent rental apartments and approximately 3,000 square feet of commercial/retail space on the ground floor.

Formerly a vacant car wash near an Oakland BART station, the development includes 43 supportive housing units (40 one-bedroom units and three studios) and one onsite manager unit as well as a community room, an outdoor courtyard on the second floor, and a rooftop terrace on the fifth floor. In addition, onsite resident services include workshops, group sessions, life skills, job training, informal gatherings, one-on-one meetings, case manager offices, and a property management office.

Aurora brings much needed affordable housing to Oakland, and it contributes to addressing the growing issue of homelessness in the San Francisco Bay Area. It is an integral part of the vision to create and maintain exceptional environments for the community and its residents, especially for those most in need. Setting an expectation and exemplifying quality development for the future of this neighborhood, Aurora is designed to the same standard as a market-rate rental project. It has a signature look for both residents and the community to be proud of.
