Plaza Roberto Maestas selected for 2017 HUD Secretary’s Design Award

Plaza Roberto Maestas

Congratulations to El Centro de la Raza for being named one of three winners of the 2017 HUD Secretary’s Design Awards for its Plaza Roberto Maestas affordable housing complex in Beacon Hill!

The Creating Community Connection Award recognizes projects that incorporate housing within other community amenities for the purpose of either revitalization or planned growth. Plaza Roberto Maestas is a landmark equitable transit-oriented development project that incorporates the community’s vision into a new mixed-use development in a rapidly gentrifying neighborhood. Completed in September 2016, Plaza Roberto Maestas consists of two six-story buildings that flank an outdoor plaza, which opens onto a Festival Street adjacent to a light rail station. Through nearly eight years of planning with the community, El Centro de la Raza transformed a surfacing parking lot into a multicultural hub for the neighborhood that incorporates 112 units of affordable housing, local small business retail and office, community space, and a bilingual child development center.  Plaza Roberto Maestas directly addresses the urgent need for affordable housing and economic opportunity in the Beacon Hill neighborhood and is a model for community-inspired transit-oriented development.
