After years of planning and preparation, construction is visibly taking shape on a new 47-unit supportive housing project for low-income residents on Sunrise Boulevard near Oak Avenue.
The project, known as Sunrise Pointe, was first proposed in 2018 and approved by the City Council the following year. It will provide permanent housing and on-site supportive services for those who are homeless or at risk of becoming homeless, those with psychiatric disabilities, and those with low or very low-income levels.
Erin Johansen of Hope Cooperative said the project’s developer, Jamboree Housing Corporation, has been making good progress on the project.
“Construction is going well,” she said in an email to The Sentinel Tuesday. “The anticipated completion date is August 2022 at this time. We are excited that things are progressing well and a bit ahead of schedule at this time.”
Johansen said in an earlier report by The Sentinel the $23 million project was the result of a collaborative effort involving the city and county, SHRA, US Bank and others.
The project will include two buildings that will house 11 one-bedroom units, 24 two-bedroom units, and 12 three-bedroom units, each ranging from 622-square-feet to 1,050-square-feet in size. Eighteen of the units will be reserved for those with a psychiatric disability, and parking will largely be along the perimeter of the 2.3-acre lot.
Tenants will be required to contribute 30% of their income to rent, which helps qualify the development as an affordable housing project.
Hope Cooperative, formerly known as TLCS, currently operates seven residential housing properties in the Sacramento region, offering a mix of interim, transitional and permanent supportive housing options. The new Sunrise Pointe project will have a live-in property manager as well as on-site staff to assist with job training, budgeting and other services.
