The City-owned site lease for Colibri Commons (located at 965 Weeks Street East Palo Alto, CA 94303) site represents a tremendous opportunity to meet the housing needs of the East Palo Alto community while adding civic vibrancy along Weeks Street and the Bay Trail connector on an old rail spur. EPACANDO and MidPen's joint proposal creates a high-quality, long-term, 100% affordable housing asset for a diverse range of household incomes and household sizes. Our proposed project will serve a broad range of the community’s housing needs, with affordability between 30% and 60% of Area Median Income and a unit mix of studios up to 4 bedrooms. EPACANDO and MidPen understand that the housing crisis has had a significant impact on East Palo Alto. Rent and home prices are rising, and longtime East Palo Alto residents are being displaced. Colibri Commons provides an opportunity to produce a wide variety of housing options, amenities, and services for residents and the greater East Palo Alto community.
