Hillsdale Townhouses

1626-1656 Hillsdale Ave, San Jose, California 95124

Hillsdale Townhouses was developed in response to the need for high-quality, affordable, workforce housing in San Jose. In 2007 MidPen Housing purchased the dilapidated site formerly known as the Hillsdale House Townhomes, which was in tremendous need of repairs. The Hillsdale Townhouses renovation completely transformed and modernized the interiors and exteriors of the complex, originally built in 1965, while keeping rents at levels that existing tenants could still afford. Insulation was added, the original windows were replaced with energy efficient windows, heating systems were upgraded, and cooling systems were added to enhance the livability of the homes. ENERGY STAR appliances and light fixtures were also placed in each unit, and the former manager's unit was turned into a community room and computer lab to be enjoyed by all 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.
