This has got to be one of the nicest looking affordable housing projects I’ve seen in the region. How cool that it started as luxury housing, and when KB pulled out, they kept the bones of the project in converting it to affordable housing! According to the San Daily Transcript (8/27/09): “Once Ten Fifty B is completed in May 2010, the 19,994-square-foot skyscraper will be home to 229 families and individuals earning between 30 percent and 60 percent of the area median income. The building includes 68 studio, 57 one-bedroom, 32 two-bedroom and 73 three-bedroom apartments. Rents will depend on apartment size and income, ranging from as low as $433 for a studio apartment up to $1,437 for a four-bedroom apartment.
