Mandela Gateway

This 2-block HOPE VI community is located across the street from the West Oakland BART station, on the former site of a blighted industrial lot and the distressed Westwood Gardens public housing development. To complete site assembly, developer BRIDGE Housing Corp. also negotiated with CalTrans, the state's Department of Transportation, to acquire a California park-and-ride lot and replace the 250 parking spaces on another site. In addition to the 168 rental townhomes and 14 owner homes, Mandela Gateway includes over 20,000 square feet of retail space.
