When they learned that BRIDGE was going to build affordable housing next door, homeowner Nelson Wong and his HOA were concerned about property values and crime.

More than 20 years later, he shared his experience. "It's become just like any other development," he said. "Most of my neighbors aren't even aware that it's [affordable] housing." View the video above to hear from Nelson and to see BRIDGE's Santa Alicia Apartments in Irvine.

We were saddened to learn that Nelson Wong passed away in 2015. Our hearts go out to his family and loved ones. We are grateful that he took the time to share his story on BRIDGEtown.
