La Almenara grew out of a public-private partnership to address the foreclosure crisis in the City of Pittsburg. Domus provided development, finance, and construction management expertise in replacing abandoned and foreclosed properties with safe, affordable dwelling units. La Almenara is part of an effort which aims to mitigate the negative impacts of the housing crisis by strategically developing scattered sites throughout downtown Pittsburg, all of which were foreclosed and abandoned. A partnership with the City of Pittsburg successfully leveraged federal Neighborhood Stabilization Program funding with Low Income Housing Tax Credits to create a twenty-unit complex to the Corner of 10th and Beacon Streets.
