Hismen Hin-Nu Terrace
Hismen Hin-Nu Terrace is designed for households both large and small, with income at less than 50% or 60% of the area median. Townhomes (3- and 4-bedrooms) are located around the rear courtyards, and smaller apartments (1-, 2-, and some 3-bedrooms) are arranged as flats along corridors in a 4-story elevator-served building facing the main street, International Boulevard. The first floor along International Boulevard contains commercial space, a Head Start center, and the management office. Two garages, a laundry room, a courtyard, and the community room are also situated on the first level.
A multi-ethnic mix of tenants is depicted in exterior murals, frieze panels, decorative tiles, and steel entry gates in the form of a burst of sunshine. (The artwork by four local artists was funded in part by the National Endowment for the Arts.) The name “Hismen Hin-Nu” means “Sun Gate” in the language of the Muwekma Ohlone Indians, who first lived in what we today call the San Antonio district. The name not only recognizes the history of the area, but also celebrates the ethnic and cultural diversity of all those who have settled in the community.
