New affordable housing leasing up
MidPen's Sequoia Belle Haven project at 1200 Willow Road is currently leasing and expects to be moving in residents in early 2017. This project provides 90 new affordable apartments for the community’s senior population as well as new senior residents. The opportunity to increase the number of affordable units from 48 to 90, for a net of 42 additional affordable apartments, was made possible in 2013 when the City of Menlo Park rezoned Sequoia Belle Haven’s site for higher density and granted MidPen $3.5M of city Below Market Rate housing funds. The design of the community supports the goal of healthy living, with a continuous pathway connecting outdoor gathering spaces, common spaces and protected courtyards. Sequoia Belle Haven will also include a community room for large gatherings, a lounge, a computer lab, an exercise room and two laundry rooms. Residents wishing to inquire about availability should contact MidPen at 650-356-2900.
