Located in East Oakland, Lion Creek Crossings is the comprehensive redevelopment and revitalization of Coliseum Gardens, formerly a distressed public housing development.  This transformative development serves as a catalyst for future transit-oriented development around the Coliseum BART station in Oakland, financed as part of a HOPE VI Grant to the Housing Authority of the City of Oakland. A public-private partnership with East Bay Asian Local Development Corporation (EBALDC) and the Oakland Housing Authority, this 10-year development built over five phases is situated around a 5.7 acre public park with a basketball court, children's play area, natural creek, 12,000 square foot community center that is home to a HeadStart center, child care center, state-of-the-art computer lab, after school program and family resource center.  Lion Creek Crossings reconnected the community to transit and open space.  Two new bridges strengthen the neighborhood connection to regional transit and allow pedestrian access. 

Phase one includes 115 affordable apartments for low-income families in garden-style walk-up buildings with the townhome units. Every apartment has its own covered and secure parking space and all apartments were designed with private decks, patios or balconies for enjoyment by families.
