Oxford Plaza Housing
Adjacent to the Brower Center, Oxford Plaza will provide 97 units of affordable workforce housing for families and individuals as well as ground-floor retail.
The mission of Oxford Plaza is to build a residential community that is a thriving contribution to Berkeley's downtown; a source of empowerment for Berkeley's working, but low-income, families and individuals; and a model for sustainable and environmentally sensitive housing development.
Oxford Plaza's developer, Resources for Community Development (RCD), is a nonprofit housing development corporation with the mission of creating and preserving affordable housing for people with the fewest options in Northern California. Founded by Berkeley community members in 1984, RCD currently has a portfolio of over 970 affordable housing units and emergency shelter beds it has developed or owns in the cities of Alameda, Albany, Antioch, Bay Point, Berkeley, Concord, Emeryville, Hayward, Oakland, and Pacheco.
The Brower Center/Oxford Plaza multi-use project represents a great synergistic opportunity. While the Oxford Plaza tenants benefit from affordable housing located next to public transit and major employers, the Brower Center benefits from having a model of sustainable, urban living next door at Oxford Plaza.
