SUMMER HOUSE APARTMENTS

Apartment Complex

1, 2, 3 & 4 Bedrooms

Multifamily Asset Renovation

Budget: 35 Million

Originally built in 1965 as low-cost housing for nearby Alameda Point Naval Air Station, the 615-unit Summer House Apartments is one of the largest multifamily properties in the East Bay area of Northern California. A civic eyesore after years of serious neglect, Kennedy Wilson Multifamily Management Group took a gamble on the property, the deterioration of which was mostly cosmetic, due to the lack of housing for young professionals and growing families in Alameda. JDC was retained to undertake the massive $35 million rehabilitation, which included renovating unit interiors, the exteriors of the property’s 16 buildings, and the property’s large pool and other amenities
