San Diego, CA —  

The San Diego community recently celebrated the grand opening of ShoreLINE, a 100-percent affordable housing development primarily serving residents earning 30-60% Area Median Income. This five-story, 124-unit building was developed by Affirmed Housing and provides residents with easy access to the Grantville Transit Center, as well as providing on-site amenities from laundry facilities on every level to a community room and computer lab.

Formerly known as Grantville Trolley Apartments, ShoreLINE was supported with $10 million from HCD’s Transit-Oriented Development (TOD) Housing Program, designed to fund infrastructure improvements and higher-density affordable housing developments within one-quarter mile of transit stations to help meet state climate goals and reduce greenhouse gas emissions. By providing affordable housing opportunities near public transit, lower-income Californians can more easily access off-site amenities, employment opportunities, and healthcare services.

ShoreLINE was designed to be both a home and a practical means of support for residents, partnering with Compass for Affordable Housing to provide complimentary computer training, resume building resources, health and wellness programs, financial literacy programs, and parenting classes. The property also includes a 5,800-square-foot courtyard with built-in seating, an enclosed tot lot play area, and a barbecue station for families.
