New affordable housing units for veterans open in Dublin

DUBLIN — A 66-unit affordable housing development geared toward veterans and seniors opened Thursday.
Valor Crossing, at 7500 Saint Patrick Way near the Dublin/Pleasanton BART station, held a ribbon-cutting Thursday to kick off its grand opening. The development features 24 one-bedroom units, 20 two-bedroom units and 21 three-bedroom units for those earning between 30 to 60 percent of the local median income. The expected income, for example, will be $45,000 to $55,000 annual salary for a family of four.
The development will give preference to veterans and their families, seniors and people with disabilities. Valor Crossing, formerly called Dublin Family Apartments, is operated by Eden Housing and features a community room for events and classes, a technology center, outdoor decks and patio areas, playgrounds, a fitness center and a laundry room.
The Dublin City Council approved $6.4 million from the city’s affordable housing fund to help pay for construction of the complex on the southeast side of St. Patrick Way and Golden Gate Drive. Through an agreement with developer Bay West, Dublin was able to offer the land, valued at $2.6 million, to Eden Housing for $100. The site was once home to the Crown Chevrolet dealership, which relocated during the economic downturn.
The cost of the project is estimated at $32 million with other contributions from a federal affordable-housing tax credit program and other federal state and county loans and grants.
