Union City celebrated progress on its BART station for a “Leed-Certified” transit-oriented development project:
There is now a 216-unit apartment complex called Pacific Terrace. Next to that is Station Center — the new 157-unit, affordable-housing building where Dutton-Cook’s family lives. It was developed by MidPen Housing, a Foster City-based company specializing in affordable housing. The five-story complex is LEED Platinum, the highest ranking for green construction. The $65.3 million development was funded by several sources, including the Union City Redevelopment Agency, Alameda County Housing Authority, California Community Reinvestment Corporation and the California Department of Housing and Community Development.
And here are the parking ratios planned for this green-construction, transit-oriented development:
