St. Joseph’s Senior Apartments offers 83 project-based Section 8 studio and one-bedroom apartments in Oakland.

This senior development was created in the main building of Oakland’s historic St. Joseph’s Home for the Aged. For many years the building had been used as low-rent commercial space and the building had deteriorated over time. The renovation resulted in 84 unique apartments, many with beautiful historic windows and other architectural details. On-site amenities include a spacious community room on the ground floor facing a courtyard community garden and sunny lobby areas with seating. One wing of the ground floor contains approximately 3,200 square feet of commercial space that is intended for tenants who will support the senior population, such as health-care providers and a pharmacy.
