Citizens Housing Corporation opens senior apartments in Oakland

San Francisco-based non-profit housing developer Citizens Housing Corporation has re-opened the historic Altenheim Senior Apartments in Oakland’s Dimond/Glenview district.

The Altenheim was built as a senior residence for German-speaking immigrants in the 1890s on six acres, and had been operated by the Excelsior German Center, formerly the Altenheim Association, until its closure in 2002. The property, listed on the National Register of Historic Places, required seismic upgrading and other updates.

Citizens Housing restored the campus and grounds at 1720 MacArthur Boulevard, creating 93 studio and one-bedroom apartments as well as two-acres of gardens and more than 10,000 square feet of community and service space. A second phase is planned to add another 81 units by 2009.
