Visionary Home Builders of California, Inc., Stockton’s nonprofit housing developer, has opened its newest community, Liberty Square, a Veteran Community. The opening occurred on Monday, Dec. 20, when many began moving in to the new homes.
Liberty Square is at 807 N. San Joaquin St., in downtown Stockton.
Previously a vacant commercial building in downtown Stockton, Liberty Square has been transformed into 74 affordable rental housing units. This new community featuring Veterans provides housing for low-income individuals and families earning between 30 percent and 60 percent of Area Median Income (AMI). The project is a three-story, mixed-use development comprised of studios, one, two, and three-bedroom units, as well as 3,000 square feet of office space for social services. Additionally, the property includes amenities such as solar energy, energy-efficient appliances, a computer lab/community center, a daycare, as well as a central laundry facility available on all three floors. Liberty Square is conveniently located near local transit and other social services.
“Liberty Square will bring life to a long-vacant commercial building while improving the infrastructure within the neighborhood,” stated Carol Ornelas, CEO of Visionary Home Builders of California, Inc. “The project will connect residents to nearby parks and services, to public transit, as well as walking and biking amenities.”
