Mission Gateway opens in Union City

by Yoomie Ahn

Bay Area affordable housing leader, Mid-Peninsula Housing Coalition (MPHC), will host a reception for its Mission Gateway property in Union City.

This is a result of combined efforts of, among others, the Community Redevelopment Agency of the city of Union City and Mid-Peninsula Housing Coalition to create new housing and business opportunities in Union City.

The development consists of 120 rental units of affordable family housing, approximately. 3,000 square feet of commercial retail space and a community building with a community hall, art room, computer lab, resident services office and gym. Other resident amenities include a BBQ area, swimming pool and children's play area with tot-lot and basketball half-court.

Mission Gateway's construction combined resources and funding from California Housing Finance Agency, State Housing and Community Development Agency, City of Union City and Wells Fargo Bank. The Architect on the project was Dahlin Group and the Construction Company W.E. O'Neil Construction Company of California. The development also features a artistic sculpture by Aaron P. Van de Kerckhove, located on the corner of Mission Blvd. and Whipple Rd.

The grand opening reception will host the Mayor of Union City, Mark Green, who will say a few words as well as a representative from the State Housing and Community Development Agency.
