Medici ARTIST LOFTS
HACSJ Partners with DFA Development on Adaptive Re-Use
The former 12-story Medico-Dental building that was built in 1927 is the source for a new adaptive mixed-use housing project. The Housing Authority County of San Joaquin in partnership with DFA Development has developed 34 units, 27 of which are affordable housing units for families with income levels between 30-60 percent area median income.
The 93-year old, former tallest building in Stockton, was renovated with funding from a variety of sources. Funding for the $11 million Medici Artist Lofts redevelopment includes Low-Income Housing Tax Credits (LIHTC), Permanent financing, and City of Stockton HOME funds. The HACSJ is providing Housing Choice Project-Based Voucher rental assistance for 27 units.
In repurposing the empty Medici-Dental building, the Housing Authority is able to provide local artists with space in downtown Stockton and grow the Stockton community which, undoubtedly, will prove to be beneficial.
