Luna Vista Apartments provides independent living for a mix of single- and two-person households earning between 30% to 70% of the area median income. Fifteen of the units are reserved for adults with intellectual or developmental disabilities. Alta Housing has partnered with Housing Choices Coalition and San Andreas Regional Center (SARC) to serve this community.

Luna Vista is situated on 0.61 acres, which previously housed a Taco Bell, and is centrally located on El Camino, a block north of Downtown Mountain View. On-site amenities include a roof-top deck with views of the mountains and bay and outdoor lounges on the second, third, fourth and fifth floors, giving residents various options for outdoor access. There is also a community room with a kitchen, a conference room, computer lab, library and laundry facilities.

According to Randy Tsuda, Alta Housingís President and CEO Alta Housing, Luna Vistaís proximity to downtown Mountain View, public transit, shopping and services, public library, pool and parks will bring stability and an enhanced quality of life to its residents. Alta Housing is providing on-site management and services to residents, including case management, resident engagement, educational assistance, health and wellness programs, financial planning courses, job counseling and assistance with accessing community resources

Luna Vista is close to multiple bus lines that allow access to communities throughout the peninsula. The new apartment community has a bicycle parking space and a storage locker available to each resident and is located within a quarter mile of the Mountain View community shuttle and four bus lines (VTA 22, 52, 81, 522). The property is LEED Platinum certified and includes rooftop solar panels and electric vehicle charging stations.

Financing was provided by the City of Mountain View, Wells Fargo Bank, California Community Reinvestment Corporation and Low Income Housing Tax Credit Program. Acquisition funding was provided by Housing Trust of Silicon Valley.

Van Meter Williams Pollack LLP served as the projectís designer. The general contractor was Nibbi Brothers; Luk and Associates was the civil engineer; Murphy Burr Curry (MBC) was the structural engineer; Fard Engineers was the mechanical electrical and plumbing plans (MEP) engineer; and Hill Associates served as the landscape architect.
