The Galloway at Hacienda Lottery Results-UPDATED

Essex Development and the City of Pleasanton are pleased to announce the availability of thirty-eight (38) below market rate (BMR) affordable rental apartments located in the Galloway at Hacienda development at 5789 Gibraltar Drive (development website: www.gallowaypleasanton.com). The affordable rental apartments will be made available for lease from April through September 2017. The 38 affordable rental apartments include three (3) studios, seventeen (17) 1-bedrooms, fourteen (14) 2-bedrooms, four (4) 3-bedrooms.  Of these units, two 1-bedroom units and one 2-bedroom BMR unit are accessible and available for lease by persons with physical disabilities.   The pre-application period submission period closed February 6, 2017.

667 eligible preapplications for these affordable rental apartments were received by the February 6 deadline.  Preapplications were next assigned points based on the City’s Preference System.  A lottery was held on February 23 to rank applicants within each point group.  Unfortunately, Galloway Hacienda realized on March 7 that it only included 548 of the 667 eligible applicants in the February 23 lottery.  Consequently, in order to give all 667 timely applicants an equal chance for a unit, while preserving the ranking among those who had already participated in the February 23 lottery, a supplemental lottery took place on March 16 that included all 667 eligible applicants. 

On March 17, the Galloway leasing office sent an email and a letter by regular mail to all 667 applicants with their Pre-Identifier Number AND their lottery ranking order. The results of the updated lottery, a detailed explanation of the updated lottery process, eligibility guidelines, FAQs, and project overview presentation are found at our Rental Housing page.

If you have questions about your lottery position or to find your Lottery Pre-Identifier Number, please contact the Galloway at Hacienda Leasing office and ask for Stacie L. D'Orazi, Senior Assistant Community Manager, at (925) 401-7454 or sdorazi@essex.com

The Galloway Leasing Office will process the Pre-Applications in lottery ranking order, beginning with Application Priority Numbers 1-50.   Processing of these first 50 Pre-Applications began in May 2017.  The Galloway Leasing team will contact you directly to ask you to submit full application materials when they reach your Application Priority Number.  If you have specific questions about your Pre-Application, you may contact the Galloway Leasing Office team staff directly and ask for Stacie L. D'Orazi, Senior Assistant Community Manager, at (925) 401-7454 or sdorazi@essex.com
