General Contractor Midstate Construction Corporation, developer Housing Consortium of the East Bay (HCEB), and tenant Open Heart Kitchen recently completed construction of Vineyard and Open Heart Kitchen in Livermore, CA.

Designed by Gunkel Architecture, the Vineyard scope of work included demolition of existing structures, and new construction of a mixed-use property, including (24) permanent supportive housing units, office meeting spaces, commercial kitchen, dining room, overnight shelter, showers, and laundry.

The homeless resource center will provide various services, including mental health, case management, housing navigation, and mailboxes.
