Recently renovated, Lake Merritt is an affordable apartment community for seniors age 62+ located in Oakland, CA. Each unit received new kitchen and bathroom cabinets and countertops, ENERGY STAR appliances as well as new windows, flooring and paint. Located overlooking Lake Merritt, the community features landscaping with mature trees and outdoor picnic benches and tables. An open space community room provides residents a place to spend time together and participate in services and activities offered by Jamboree’s Community Impact Group. Gated entry, covered parking, elevators and laundry facilities create convenience for residents, while the newly installed nurse call system in each apartment provides a safe environment and peace of mind.
Lake Merritt is located in Alameda County, a fully walkable neighborhood. Many dining and shopping opportunities within blocks of the property help seniors maintain their independence with or without a personal vehicle. Convenient access to BART Stations and Highway 880 allows for easy to travel to other parts of the Bay area.
Lake Merritt was acquired and rehabilitated to both raise the quality of the community and maintain affordability for residents. Jamboree partners closely with investors and property management to provide affordable senior housing in a high-density area with real estate and rental prices that are out-of-reach for many seniors.
