Dominic D. Dutra (3D) has an extensive background in local government and commercial real estate and development. Instead of focusing on the private sector, where profits and shareholder value are of paramount importance, he wanted to create a company that was focused on using real estate to improve communities. As such, he is committed to working closely with our clients, listening carefully, and learning their organizations’ missions, how they serve their community and what long-term goals they have for the organization. He then assembles a team of experts who seamless partner with our clients to optimize their real property resources in support of their mission and goals.
The City of Hayward
Dominic Dutra worked closely with the City Council, City Manager and Key Staff to create a vibrant transformation of the Mission Boulevard corridor in South Hayward, including a new transit-oriented neighborhood to be constructed on formal Caltrans right-away between Industrial Parkway and Valle Vista Avenue.
The SoHay project by William Lyon Homes will bring 472 mixed-income multi-family rental and for-sale townhomes plus approximately 20,000 square feet of ground-floor retail to approximately 25 acres of underutilized and mostly vacant land.
A series of trails, paseos, sidewalks and bicycle paths will connect development across 21 separate parcels that have been assembled and aggregated to make possible the project—including former Caltrans, Hayward Area Recreation District, BART and Alameda County Flood Control District property. Recreation improvements are to include relocation and expansion of one-acre Valle Vista Park to 1.89 acres fronting on Mission Boulevard and running east-west along the flood control channel to Dixon Street.
Under the project’s affordable housing plan, 20 of a total 72 rental units will be priced at below-market rates affordable to low-income households. Twenty-eight of 400 for-sale homes will be sold at below-market prices affordable to moderate-income buyers.
Sisters of The Holy Family
The congregation of Sisters of the Holy Family is a community of Roman Catholic Sisters founded in San Francisco in 1872. Their mission is “To seek out and advocate for the poor and needy, especially families, for the kingdom of God.” The Sisters have been a part of the Fremont community since 1948, when they purchased the Palmdale property. The Sisters’ Motherhouse, built in 1959, was originally designed as a home for women aged 20-35. It is no longer appropriate housing for the Sisters, whose median age is now 80 years. Additionally, the cost to maintain the extensively landscaped 14.8 acres and the two historic homes on their property has become increasingly cost prohibitive.
Dominic Dutra worked closely with the Order’s President, Sister Gladys Guenther, and their leadership to find ways to maintain their commitment to the Earth Charter and to the principles set forth by the U.S. Bishops in Renewing the Earth, including preserving the environmental and historic treasures of their land (Palmdale). The plan also resulted in the construction of more age-appropriate housing for the Sisters including three cottage-style buildings totaling 45 units.
