Co- developed by Jamboree Housing and West Sacramento Housing & Development, this newest affordable housing project features 77 sustainable apartment homes, 4,000 square feet of retail space and 12,000 square feet of common areas in two four-story buildings, and close transportation with bicycle and pedestrian paths.

Each home is equipped with energy saving appliances, water saving fixtures, and high-efficiency landscape. West Gateway Place is designed to achieve LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) status.

“West Gateway Place is sustainable in so many ways,” said Mayor Christopher Cabaldon at the grand opening event. “It’s strategically located near shopping, job centers and community resources so that residents can walk, ride a bike, or use public transportation to get where they want to go, leaving their auto at home. It’s transit-oriented location plays an important  role in reducing greenhouse gas and creating a healthier, stronger community for all of our residents.”

Mayor Cabaldon continued ,“As a city, we believe it’s important to provide housing and services for people who may not have higher paying jobs…who want to live in our community,” the Mayor stated. “West Gateway Place represents the type of high-quality, mixed-use housing that these residents will be able to afford and live a comfortable life.”

The Mayor thanked members of the City’s Economic Development and Housing Department and Community Development for seeing the project through.

In addition to the Affordable Housing and Sustainable Communities Program funds, the $29.8 million West Gateway Place development includes financing from the City of West Sacramento and Union Bank.

West Gateway place is currently at full occupancy.
