Station Center, the pioneer affordable family housing at the heart of the Union City Master Plan, comprises 157 affordable rental units in two buildings framing a public playground and overlooking the new plaza and eventual direct connection to the BART station.
The building is ringed with active edges, including retail along the front. It contains onsite health and social services including programs for children and teens. The community room opens onto a fitness center and pool deck, and opens entirely to a grand courtyard, creating a large indoor-outdoor gathering space.
