STOCKTON — Tenants will begin moving into a new affordable housing development in downtown Stockton by the end of the month, with renovation nearly complete of two buildings whose combined age is more than 200 years.

All of the apartments at Cal Weber 40 — a 40-unit project at California Street and Weber Avenue — already have been leased, developer Chris Flaherty said Monday. Flaherty said there also is a lengthy waiting list.

“Obviously the community has been super supportive, and there is a need for workforce housing,” Flaherty said.

The project entailed renovation of the 125-year-old Cal Weber Building and the adjoining 88-year-old McKeegan Building.

Construction of a connected parking deck should be complete within 60 days, according to Flaherty. Units are solar-powered and there will be a private playground when the project is finished.
