Tomorrow (Tuesday, July 29), from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., Casa Verde — San Leandro’s new affordable housing complex that replaced the former Islander Motel — will officially be kicking off its grand opening.
Housing officials and city dignitaries will be on hand — the address is 2398 E. 14th St. — to cut the ceremonial ribbon. Tours also will be held during the celebration.
And just in case you were wondering, the 67-unit Casa Verde has received more than 700 applications. I’ve also been told there are 250 people on the waiting list.
