STOCKTON (CBS13) — One of the oldest and largest buildings in downtown Stockton is about to undergo a huge renovation as part of the city’s plans to help revitalize and bring more life to the area.
The structure, which is roughly 90 years old, is turning into a mixed-income apartment building. It’s a first of its kind project focused on attracting area artists and retail.
A few days ago, Stockton business owner Patricia Ayala became part of the downtown landscape with a new hair salon located inside an old building that was recently refurbished.
“It felt like this is the place that we were meant to be; it’s so multicultural around here, you see lawyers walking by, you see the kids walking by. It’s so urban, yet so sophisticated,” said Ayala.
Ayala is expecting her list of clients to grow once Stockton’s first mixed-income apartment project is complete. Developers are turning the 90-year-old Medico-Dental building into the Medici Artist Lofts, creating 33 units, most of which will be affordable housing.
