This GreenPoint Rated affordable family housing, developed by BRIDGE Housing, is part of the emerging Central Station district anchored by Oakland's historic original train station.
This four-story sustainable building encloses a podium-level courtyard with a freestanding community pavilion. East and west sides take on different aspects to answer diverse surrounding conditions: new townhouses at one edge, and a highway at the other.
Residents enter through an open-air lobby with a breezeway view of the interior landscaping and branch off to a mix of affordable units punctuated by glassed-in winter gardens.
Just adjacent to Ironhorse, 14th Street has been fully reconstructed to include a traffic-calming pocket park and pedestrian amenities.
Available to households earning 50% area median income, Ironhorse offers families private decks, an elegant community room, classroom space, laundry facilities, secure on-site parking, and landscaped garden area and courtyard.
