Gleason Park Apartments
Gleason Park Apartments will feature 93 one, two, three and four bedroom affordable apartments, within ten residential buildings varying in two to three stories, for very low-income families earning 50% or less of the area median income. The 3.6 acre property will also include a 5,008 square foot community center that will feature an on-site Head Start Center that will serve resident children on a priority basis. The property, located close to downtown, is part of the City of Stockton’s Gleason Park redevelopment area and is immediately adjacent to the recently renovated Gleason Park and the new A.G. Spanos Elementary School.
Consistent with Mercy Housing sustainable building practices, Gleason Park Apartments will include energy efficiency appliances, renewable energy sources including electricity generating solar panels, and low-impact, water-wise landscaping. Construction is expected to be completed mid-year 2011 with resident occupancy during the summer.
In addition to Head Start, which will be operated by the Head Start Child Development Council, the Gleason Park Apartments Community Center will contain:
- 1,000 square foot classroom
- 1,000 square foot multi-purpose room
- Computer lab
- Two outdoor playground structures and play areas
- Staff offices, lobby and reception, kitchen and restroom facilities
