2023 Development that Best Exemplifies Special Needs Population

River City Senior Apartments LP

Developer: PEP Housing
Location: Petaluma, CA


PEP Housing provided much-needed affordable housing for vulnerable seniors in Petaluma, California, with the development of the 54-apartment River City Senior Apartments. Among the residents, 34 apartments are for residents who were experiencing homelessness before moving into the new property along the Petaluma River. Nineteen of those residents are veterans. River City Senior Apartments tenants can enjoy a walking trail, a dog run and a community center with a wellness center, classroom, kitchen and computer lab. The development received $16 million in LIHTC equity from investor Merritt Community Capital Corporation. The tenant base means administrators at the apartments have had to teach some residents how to use a washer and dryer and how to live in a community. Smoking cessation classes were implemented to help tenants follow the edict of a nonsmoking campus and there are as other classes with remote technology for residents uncomfortable being around others.
