Station Center is at the heart of Union City's vision to create the Station District, a vibrant city center bustling with attractive store fronts, community parks and high-quality housing. Station Center provides housing in an innovative plan that wraps apartment buildings around common areas to create an open feel. The main open-arch entrance reveals a series of spaces for gathering. There are gardens, playgrounds, a fitness facility, a pool and a community center where programs are offered to residents. The street frontage on the ground floor is for retail shops, restaurants, and businesses. BART and bus lines are also in close proximity, so residents can walk and take public transportation to-and-from this transit-oriented community. Sustainable design is a top priority with Station Center, with a LEED Platinum Certification.

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.
Generally, households earning up to the income limit in the table below for their household size are eligible for units participating in the Low-Income Housing Tax Credit program in Union City but actual income limits may differ for units at Station Center.
|AMI Band||1 Person||2 Person||3 Person||4 Person||5 Person||6 Person||7 Person||8 Person|
|Very Low Income (50%)||$45,700||$52,200||$58,750||$65,250||$70,500||$75,700||$80,950||$86,150|
|Low Income (60%)||$54,840||$62,640||$70,500||$78,300||$84,600||$90,840||$97,140||$103,380|
Station Center was built in part with financing obtained through the Low Income Housing Tax Credit (LIHTC) program. In addition to providing apartments for low-income households, this property could include some market rate units. Households earning 60% or less of the Area Median Income (AMI) qualify for targeted rental units in LIHTC financed housing. This property may also designate units for renters with even lower incomes, from 60% of AMI down to 30% AMI. It is even possible that all units have been set aside for those with extremely low incomes (as low as 15% of AMI). This means that the same size unit can rent for different amounts based on the income of the renter.
Figuring out income and rent limits for affordable housing can be complex especially when more than one federal program is involved. To know for sure if you qualify, you must contact the property directly. The amounts provided here should only be used as a basic guide.
Station Center is managed by MidPen Housing.
