Berkeley, already among the most expensive places to build in the East Bay, just raised the price tag for developers who do not include affordable units on site.
Berkeley officials voted unanimously Tuesday night to prioritize a plan to build what was described as the city’s largest ever supportive housing development for the homeless.
Like other large development proposals in Berkeley, this unusual dorm-like co-living project is testing opinions on what’s needed to best solve the city’s housing crisis.
Sometimes when neighbors object to a project and work with the developers, the building gets better. Sometimes it just gets stopped.
