Project Details

In a unique public-private partnership, Overaa will renovate an old building in San Pablo to accommodate 54 residential units. The project will provide permanent supportive housing for up to 58 people experiencing, or at risk of experiencing, homelessness. The design-build, adaptive reuse project will reimagine the two-level, 27,000 SF building as a community of small residences of approximately 350 square feet each, with ADA-adaptable bathrooms and kitchenettes. The program includes recreation areas, a dog park, EV parking, and provisions for a future residents’ garden and roof top solar array.
