Council approves zoning changes for large northeastern complex

Almost 400 affordable senior and family apartments could soon sprout up between two residential neighborhoods in an area of northeastern Antioch that hasn’t seen much development in recent years.

Located southwest of East 18th Street and Holub Lane just west of Highway 160, the proposed AMCAL Family and Senior Apartments will feature 11 three-story buildings on 14.85 acres. Of the 390 affordable units in the gated complex, 214 will be designed for families and 176 for tenants 55 and older. Four will be manager units.

“This family and senior housing project is an important residential project for the city of Antioch for needed housing,” City Manager Ron Bernal told the City Council this week.

Community Development Director Forrest Ebbs said although the city has been talking about possible projects at the site for a long time, the latest proposal came about fairly quickly. It’ll require a zoning change from “planned development” to “high-density residential” and “senior housing overlay district.”
