Fresh Look for Southlake Tower
At CCH, one of our strategic goals is to ensure a high quality of life for residents. This mandate includes making meaningful capital investments to maintain and update our properties. These physical improvements help to foster human dignity and to create a supportive environment for our residents. In helping fulfill our goals, a recent renovation project was completed at Southlake Tower in Oakland.
Construction began in June 2018 and was completed one year later in July 2019. Owned by CCH since 2004, the approximately $4 million renovation project included:
- New flooring and interior wall painting in the hallways and common areas on floors 1-8;
- Revamping of the first floor shared kitchen space;
- Facelift for the multipurpose room, including new blinds, flooring, lighting and paint;
- Upgrades to the building’s operating systems, including the sewer, boilers, and elevator modernization;
- Painting of the building exterior; and a
- New roof.
“These upgrades give a fresh look to the property,” shares CCH Development Assistant Project Manager Gaby Haddad. “It’s nice working with our residents to provide them a clean, revitalized place to call home.”
The project was funded by the California Housing Finance Agency (CalHFA). “We are thankful for the assistance of CalHFA,” says CCH President and CEO Don Stump. “Upkeep of our properties is vital in maintaining a safe and secure home for our residents. Plus, we love to see the smiles on our residents’ faces in their spruced up new surroundings.”
Don looks forward to celebrating the completion of the project with residents and staff at a grand reopening ceremony later this year.
