Chestnut Linden Court
BRIDGE Housing Corp. creates and manages a range of affordable, high-quality housing for working families and seniors. As part of the campaign to revitalize West Oakland, the Oakland Housing Authority selected BRIDGE to develop Chestnut Linden Court. BRIDGE developed the neighborhood in two phases: the first phase, Chestnut Court, was built on the site of a severely distressed, vacant public housing project. The second phase, Linden Court, is a higher-density development on a 1.6-acre parcel located a half-block from Chestnut Court.
This case study was written for the 2005 Green Building Tour in Alameda County.
