Cathedral Gardens

638 21ST ST, Oakland, California 94612

Cathedral Gardens is an affordable rental housing community designed for families. Centrally located near downtown, 1/2 mile from BART, the community consists of 100 apartment homes built on an ideal infill site. The development incorporates a mix of new construction and historic rehab. Two new buildings, one three stories and the other four stories, are constructed on either side of a rehabilitated 110-year old historic rectory building. The four story building is constructed over a sunken structured parking garage with a landscaped podium deck to provide usable outdoor space for residents.

Low-Income Housing Tax Credit (LIHTC)

Since this property has received funding in part through the Low Income Housing Tax Credit (LIHTC) program, a certain number of units are set aside for lower income households. Households must earn either less than 50% or 60% of the area median income (depending on the set-aside option chosen by the property owner) to qualify for these units. Rents in these units are capped at a maximum of 30% of the set-aside area median income (adjusted for unit size). Some rental units in this property may not be subject to LIHTC and therefore have higher rents and no maximum household income requirement.
