A partnership between two affordable housing developers—MidPen Housing and Charities Housing—was established to transform the site of a former armory into permanent, supportive housing for formerly homeless and low-income families in the heart of Sunnyvale.
The project is located near the junction of two major thoroughfares (N. Wolfe Avenue and Fair Oaks Boulevard) and is adjacent to a large public park.
DBA is designing the MidPen Housing portion of the development, which includes 58 units of family housing (1-, 2-, and 3-bedroom units) organized around three courtyards, with community and office spaces at street level.
Charities Housing and Studio E are producing the adjacent studio housing. The design and development teams are working closely to maximize the benefits of the site for both developments and the surrounding neighborhood.
