New affordable complex under construction

A 41-unit affordable housing development is under construction in Hollister.

CHISPA is building the new Buena Vista Apartments, located at 810 Buena Vista Road, with a scheduled completion in March 2017. The developer is accepting applications until Dec. 30. Applications will be sorted for review by a random selection process, according to a CHISPA press release.

The apartment complex will feature three one-bedroom, 25 two-bedroom, and 12 three-bedroom apartments. There will also be a manager’s unit and several common areas, including a 2,000 square-foot community center. Amenities include a barbeque area, a children’s play area, a fitness room, a community garden, computers with internet access, and laundry facilities.

According to the press release, the apartment complex will be energy efficient and environmentally friendly thanks to solar panels and drought-tolerant landscaping. Appliances will be Energy Star Certified, and storm water will be filtered onsite.

Applications can be submitted to CHISPA in person at the Salinas or Hollister offices, by email, fax, or mail. For more information on the application process, call CHISPA at (831) 757-6254, or go to
