Affordable Housing

I guess I’m a cynic.

Expectations:

Donner Lofts is a response to the tremendous need for affordable workforce housing in San Jose, a city where rents are among the most expensive in the nation.

Expected to open in summer 2016, Donner Lofts is an environmentally-friendly, mixed-use community which will provide 102 affordable apartments for working individuals. Twenty units will be reserved for the formerly homeless who will receive onsite supportive services. The development also includes over 2,500 square feet of retail space on the street level and a computer lab, exercise room, community room and outdoor courtyard where residents can gather.

Reality:

SAN JOSE — Police rushed to shut down downtown streets tonight after a man was found unconscious with a serious knife wound to the neck.

The attack occurred just before 6 p.m. in front of the Donner Lofts, the same building where San Jose police shot and killed a man on May 28 after he reportedly came at them with an ax.
