In partnership with neighborhood groups and the City of Oakland, Domus was able to transform a long-troubled site into a valuable addition to the community. Lincoln Court redeveloped a site that was previously occupied by the Hillcrest Motel, a blighted property known for drug activity and prostitution. Located in Oakland’s vibrant Dimond District, Lincoln Court provides 82 units of housing to low-income seniors, many with disabilities. An expansive on-site senior center managed by Self-Help for the Elderly offers supportive services, allowing residents to “age in place” gracefully. The three-story apartment building incorporates green building components and includes a central courtyard with lush landscaping and garden furniture.
