2018 Development that Best Preserves Family Housing
Developer: Affirmed Housing The Dahlin Group
Location: San Marcos, Calif.
An unused, flat, 15-acre space in the heart of San Marcos, Calif., was transformed into a master planned community, and one corner is now Eastgate, a 42-apartment affordable complex developed by Affirmed Housing.
Eastgate rents to residents who earn 50 to 60 percent of the area median income and offers ground-floor commercial retail space in a prime, walkable location. Eastgate was designed to appeal to a diverse community of emerging entrepreneurs, new businesses, local artists, families and college students.
Eastgate is a prime example of a multiuse, affordable housing community built to the local city’s requirements.
