Pleasanton is located in an area where the cost of rental housing has traditionally been high, similar to other Bay Area locations. The city does not build, own, or manage any rental housing directly.
The City encourages the construction of affordable rental housing by allowing special consideration for projects that provide rental apartment units at below-market rent levels. Nearly 1,000 below-market rental (BMR) apartment units have been built in Pleasanton since the mid-1980's.See current apartments at below-market rents . The leasing process (inquiries, applications, etc.) is administered on-site at each complex. Since 2012, the City has approved several new apartment developments with approximately 1,750 total units. These new complexes, when built, will include nearly 350 additional BMR apartment units. Leasing of new complexes will take place as each complex nears completion of construction. See future complexes with BMR units listed below.
In order to qualify to rent a BMR apartment, applicant’s income must generally not exceed 80% of the local median income level (several complexes also have apartments for households at 50% and 60% of median income).The current maximum annual incomes (by household size) and corresponding maximum rents (by unit size) can be found here . Maximum income and rent levels are adjusted annually based on new information from the federal government.
Leasing is handled directly by the property manager for each apartment complex.For new projects information on the BMR program and participating apartment complexes, see below or contact the City of Pleasanton Housing Division , (925) 931-5011 200 Old Bernal Avenue, Pleasanton, CA 94566.
