Touted as the new Town Center of Beacon Hill, El Centro de la Raza’s Plaza Roberto Maestas is a mixed-use development adjacent to the light rail station. It provides 113 units of affordable housing over 30,000 square feet of daycare, multi-cultural community center, retail/restaurant and office space. This development includes one 4-story and one 5-story wood framed building over post-tensioned concrete separated by a courtyard with below grade parking under the entire complex. Plaza Roberto Maestas is a shining example of combining affordable housing (for residents making between 30 and 80% of the median income), with the City’s investment in transit and green building while preserving Latino cultural traditions.
