UC Berkeley’s University Village in Albany has been home to student families for decades. Demolition of World War II era barrack housing along San Pablo Avenue along with removal of research buildings on adjacent UC land has created an opportunity for development that will benefit our students and the Albany community. The project, consisting of senior housing, grocery store and small retail shops, has been carefully planned with extensive public participation over many years. It was unanimously approved by the Albany City Council in March 2014. This website provides some detail and background regarding the project.
