Foster City Replaces Blighted Shopping Center with Housing For All Income Levels
The Community Before
Foster City had a rundown shopping center with an abandoned gas station. The gas station was unused for some fifteen years and two of the remaining nine shopping center tenants had abandoned their sites.
An old dry cleaning establishment had left the area in need of clean up. In addition, the center blocked views of the Bay. The shopping center’s neglected condition discouraged investment in the neighborhood.
The Community Now
Now the site is home to the Miramar, a 159-unit apartment community, for people at all different incomes levels.
