Stuart Street Apartments
The Stuart Street Apartments in South Berkeley is property adjacent to and owned by the McGee Avenue Baptist Church.
joint project between the Historic McGee Avenue Baptist Church (MABC) and the Bay Area Community Land Trust (BACLT)
addresses the dire housing needs of the Berkeley African American community by rehabilitating MABC’s eight-unit residential property into affordable housing for those under threat of displacement.
Acquired by MABC in 1978 to provide affordable housing for its low-income members.
As congregation dwindled and people moved away due to high costs of living, the building became vacant and experienced blight.
From August 2019 with completion estimated by March/April of 2020, the property will be renovated and rehabilitated.
Plans include eight single bedroom units, one unit being fully ADA compliant, all intended for South Berkeley residents under threat of displacement below 80%, 60%, and 30% AMI.
Fairmount House in Oakland
Fairmount House is located in the Oakland Ave/Harrison/Grand Lake district of Oakland.
In early 2019, the owner of the Fairmount House passed away and his trustee donated the property to BACLT.
This turn of the 20th century home is divided into ten separate units. BACLT is currently working with the resident to convert the property into a cooperatively managed building.
