Pittsburg, CA- Integrated Community Development, Corporation for Better Housing and the City of Pittsburg are proud to announce the groundbreaking for The Atchison, a high density, mixed use, and transit-oriented development.
This catalyst project embraces the concepts of transit accessibility, pedestrian friendly design, high-quality development, inclusiveness, and sustainability to help create a vibrant 21st Century hub. The Atchison embodies the goals of the Railroad Avenue Specific Plan and sets the bar for future mixed-use developments in the City of Pittsburg.
Located less than half a mile from the BART Station, The Atchison will help to provide new affordable housing opportunities within a pedestrian oriented neighborhood with access to transportation, job centers, retail, schools, and community services. The development will include 202 residential units and approximately 13,000 square feet of ground floor commercial / retail space. The development offers the residents a robust amenity package including a pool with a sunning deck, fire pits, outdoor BBQ areas, playgrounds, community business center, fitness center, lounge area and pool side clubhouse. The Atchison offers market rate amenities with mixed income rents.
Mayor Jelani Killings stated, “With the Atchison project, the City of Pittsburg is continuing to see the community’s vision of the Railroad Avenue corridor and the area around the Pittsburg Center BART Station come to life. This project addresses the need in Pittsburg for high quality and amenity-driven transit-oriented development, and shows that during these uncertain times, Pittsburg is a community that is working, building, and looking toward the future.”
This development would not have been possible without the investments made by our financing partners including, CalHFA, CTCAC, CDLAC, Aliant Capital, and Pacific Western Bank.
The Groundbreaking Ceremony will begin at 10am and be attended by a limited number of attendees practicing social distancing protocols and PPE will be provided.
