Vista Nueva, a hotel conversion project, has opened its doors to support families experiencing homelessness.
Vista Nueva is an adaptive reuse of the former Staybridge Extended Stay Hotel in North Natomas. This hotel conversion helps to address both the immediate crisis of homelessness and the ongoing need for permanent supportive housing solutions in the area, officials said.
The new housing community includes 63 studios, 39 one-bedroom apartments and 14 two-bedroom apartments that will support families and children. In total, its 116 rooms will serve more than 200 individuals.
“This project is an important and effective strategy to bring our unhoused families into supportive housing with wrap-around services needed to thrive,” said Vice Mayor Angelique Ashby, who represents Natomas and has pushed for the project.
Vista Nueva is run by non-profit housing developer Jamboree in conjunction with the Sacramento Housing and Redevelopment Agency.
The project is funded through $29 million in state Project Homekey funding.
Vista Nueva is the second hotel conversion by the City of Sacramento using Homekey funds.
Last year, the city opened the La Mancha permanent supportive housing complex in the structure formerly occupied by the Woodspring Suites in south Sacramento.
