First Community Housing built 27 studio units (400 SF) of sustainable, affordable, special needs, rental housing at 1585 W. El Camino Real in Mountain View. This project is designed to serve very low and extremely low-income (30-50% of the area median income) developmentally disabled adults, a population group with great need for affordable housing opportunities. FCH has extensive experience developing housing communities where developmentally disabled tenants can receive the support they need to live comfortably and independently. We work in partnership with Housing Choices Coalition, a nonprofit organization that provides housing and resident coordination services for the developmentally disabled population in Santa Clara County and beyond. 1585 Studios will enable local developmentally disabled individuals who have grown up in and are most comfortable in Mountain View to continue living in their home community with access to their existing support systems.
First Community Housing’s 1585 Studios project achieved LEED platinum certification and all residents receive free VTA Eco Passes.

1585 Studios is registered with the US Green Building Council and received a LEED Platinum rating. The building’s focus is on healthy living, lower operating expenses and reducing automobile use.
Healthy living for our tenants starts by giving consideration to indoor air quality. Materials such as paints, finishes, adhesives, cabinets, carpets, resilient linoleum flooring that have of low volatile compound makeup and low off-gassing properties keep tenants and staff from breathing and absorbing toxic fumes that can otherwise cause potentially harm to their health. In addition, resilient flooring, carpeting last longer than the standard and none of these items is less durable than standard finishes.
Saving energy lowers operating expenses. This is achieved through insulation, water use, efficient plumbing and electrical fixtures. By having well-insulated and ventilated shell it reduces the amount of energy required to heat and cool the units and helps to improve indoor air quality. Lower energy use equals lower energy costs for the both common area and our tenants.
