AN LORENZO -- Within a couple of years, a vacant building that housed a post office could be replaced by apartments for low-income seniors.
Alameda County supervisors this week approved 77 apartments off Hesperian Boulevard north of Paseo Grande. The project will receive $14.5 million in redevelopment money; it is one of the last funded by the county’s redevelopment agency before Gov. Jerry Brown dissolved the agencies statewide in 2012.
The nonprofit agency building the apartments will apply to the state for low-income housing tax credits. If its application is approved, work could start in March, said Barbara Gualco of Mercy Housing. The project will cost an estimated $26 million, she said.
