PALO ALTO, CA—A virtual groundbreaking celebration recently marked the kick-off of Wilton Court, a 100% affordable residential rental community at 3705 El Camino Real. The new 59-unit development is slated for completion in summer 2022, according to nonprofit affordable housing developer Alta Housing, formerly Palo Alto Housing.

"On our 50th anniversary, we are so thrilled to be building this new affordable housing project in the city of Palo Alto, our organization's hometown," said Randy Tsuda, Alta Housing's president and CEO. "Providing high-quality supportive housing near transit and amenities allows people to thrive, including those with special needs."

The residential development will provide independent living for a mix of single- and two-person households earning between 30% to 60% of the area median income. Wilton Court is also the first development to use the city's newly created affordable housing combining district. Moreover, 21 of the units are reserved for adults with intellectual or developmental disabilities.
