1957 rendering of Golden Gate Village by architect Aaron Green


Designed by Frank Lloyd Wright protege, Aaron Green, and built to house a primarily African-American population that helped build 93 Liberty ships in World War II, Golden Gate Village today is a vibrant, low- and very-low income neighborhood on the National Historic Register.


Golden Gate Village is the only majority-Black public housing in affluent Marin County. It’s now targeted by the Marin Housing Authority and a private New Jersey developer who intends to tear down 16 existing low-rise units, crowd an additional 156 units into two new high-rise buildings, delay critical repairs to existing units for years, and introduce a cookie-cutter approach that would destroy the tight-knit community.


But residents have a better plan. One they've been fighting to get the County to consider since 2013. They want deep green renovation of their existing homes, no new buildings, and a pathway to home ownership through the creation of a community land trust. Learn more about the history - and potential future - of this very special place.

A detailed review of the most recent HUD-required property analysis uncovered significant financial discrepancies in the report accepted by the MHA and the Housing Commission. The letter also highlights unsubstantiated renovation estimates by the outside developer of $941,000 per existing unit!
