Presented by MidPen Housing.
Come celebrate the completion of Edwina Benner Plaza, 66 affordable apartment homes for families and those with supportive housing needs in Sunnyvale. Named in honor of Edwina Benner, California’s first female mayor who served as the Mayor of Sunnyvale from 1924 to 1926 and again from 1938 to 1940, Benner Plaza is located on a formerly underutilized site where a single story commercial building once stood. The site’s redevelopment furthers Sunnyvale’s vision to transform the area into a well-served neighborhood housing local workers in close proximity to schools, parks, retail, employment opportunities, and public transit connections. Edwina Benner Plaza addresses the pressing need for affordable housing in Silicon Valley, one of the nation’s most expensive housing markets.
