A healthy neighborhood allows residents to live, work, shop and play within their local community. The East Bay Asian Local Development Corporation (EBALDC) is committed to developing the neighborhood by providing affordable commercial spaces as homes for community serving nonprofit organizations, retail businesses and service providers that hire from and serve local residents.
Revitalizing Neighborhood Economies
Since 1975, EBALDC has invested more than $240 million in assets that have had substantial physical and social impact in the community, including more than 370,000 square feet of commercial space that bring street-level vitality and critical services to our neighborhoods.
EBALDC’s criteria to leasing commercial space:
Mission-Aligned: Our priority is to lease to non-profit collaborative partners providing services that support EBALDC’s goals for that neighborhood, such as employment, social or human service providers, or public benefit entities.
Social Asset: We also lease to business entities that will “activate” the neighborhood.
Financial Asset: We consider providing short term, market-rate leases to neighborhood-serving retail and other business entities.
No Lease: We will not lease to businesses that are not mission-aligned, and may have negative impact in the neighborhood.
Vacancies: Please see the attached PDF for our Available or Upcoming Space as of September 2017.
