Hugh Taylor House
Hugh Taylor House was a vacant and vandalized convalescent hospital until EBALDC renovated the building and invited the first tenants to move in by the end of May 1994. The project was named in honor of Hugh Taylor, the local representative to the Economic Development Administration in the 1970s who was instrumental in helping EBALDC gain funding for the acquisition and renovation of its first project (the Asian Resource Center).
Hugh Taylor House – situated in front of Seminary Creek – offers 30 single room occupancy (SRO) units, 7 double-room occupancy units, and 5 1-bedroom units (an additional unit is reserved for staff), as well as a large community room, common patio area, laundry rooms, community kitchen, and parking lot. The common areas are handicap accessible, and all units are handicap adaptable.
Twenty-five units are subsidized through the Section 8 Moderate Rehabilitation Program, requiring residents to pay no more than 30% of their income on rent; all applicants for those units must be referred by the Oakland Housing Authority. The other 17 rental units are available to households with incomes at or below 50% AMI; these units are regulated by the State of California Housing and Community Development and City of Oakland Redevelopment Agency.
