Ground Breaking for Pacific Station North Apartments in Santa Cruz!

Affordable Housing Month activities continue and yesterday we were back in Santa Cruz for another community event. A new 128-unit community is one step closer to transforming lives in downtown Santa Cruz. Developed by our partners, @For the Future Housing and Eden Housing, Pacific Station North Apartments broke ground with a festive community celebration.

This development, located between Pacific Avenue and Front Street, is the final phase of the large-scale, transit-oriented Pacific Station initiative. We’re honored to have supported this project with a predevelopment loan through our TECH Fund and our Monterey Bay Housing Trust, in collaboration with our financial partner, the Monterey Bay Economic Partnership.

We also provided early funding to the first phase next door, Pacific Station South and are excited to see the 69-unit project nearly complete!

A big congratulations and THANK YOU to all the public and private partners who helped make this new community a reality:
