Phoenix Commons offers cohousing for seniors in Jingletown

In East Oakland’s Jingletown, a new twist on senior housing is in the works. The neighborhood known for its artists’ lofts will soon be home to Phoenix Commons, a “cooperative lifestyle community” for older adults. The four-story complex of 41 units will be the East Bay’s first senior cohousing development, according to project CEO Chris Zimmerman. Look for it on 29th Street overlooking the waterfront, just off Alameda’s Park Street bridge. Move-in date: early 2015.

Are you in favor of the proposed relocation of the Harbor Bay Club?

Ron Matthews: I am in favor of such a move for many reasons; the most important is a decrease in traffic on Packet Landing Road, Robert Davey Drive, and on Island Drive. It is my understanding that over 52 percent of the nearly 4,000 members are from outside 94502, which means all of those cars will be taking Harbor Bay Parkway instead of Island Drive. The current location is too small for the demand that has grown in Alameda and the facilities are old.
