one-bedroom units, depending on the AMI level.

Are pets and/or service animals allowed?
Pets and service animals are welcome at Pride Place! There are no breed restrictions, however, there is a two pet per household limit.


Will there be parking available?
Because this is a transit-oriented development located in a dense neighborhood, there is no resident parking associated with this building. 


How do I figure out if my income qualifies?
Pride Place apartments have income maximums related to the number of people in the household. Unit Area Median Income (unit AMI) refers to the maximum income allowed for that apartment. For a preliminary walk-through of determining your income and what unit AMI you may qualify for, please reference the AMI chart on this page


Are utilities included in rent?

Residents will be responsible for paying electricity, heat, water, and sewer. Utility allowances for those services are credited against rent to offset the resident's expected utility expenses. Trash and recycle pick up and all common building utilities are paid by Community Roots Housing.

Is there air conditioning in apartments?

Units do not have A/C but all units have ceiling fans for evaporative cooling.  All corridors, common areas, and the ground floor GenPride center have A/C. Residents are able to install portable A/C units through a port in the operable window (no window-mounted units are allowed).  That said, the building’s high performance building envelope is expected to insulate in both winter and summer, regulating temperatures in the building and keeping units cooler than a typical building in extreme heat events.

How do you pay for the on-site laundry facilities?

Laundry machines can be operated by using a prepaid card or mobile app. Reloadable laundry cards cost $5 and the price to wash and dry is $1.75.

I still have questions. Who can I talk to?
