HAYWARD, Calif. (October 14, 2021) — Homes Built For America (HBFA), the new homebuilding division of real estate firm The True Life Companies, has announced the start of construction on SoMi, a 189-resident new home community located at 29212 Mission Boulevard in Hayward, CA. 

Located within the City’s Mission Boulevard Corridor, the mixed-use commercial and residential SoMi will feature 123 three-story attached townhomes with three- and four-bedroom layouts that range from 1,563 to 1,984 square feet, as well as 66 condominiums with two- to three-bedroom plans that range from 1,124 to 1,368 square feet, of which 20 will be below market rate. The community will include a meeting room and office space, three rooftop decks, a 17,000-square-foot dog park, pedestrian trails, multiple relaxing park areas, and access to additional outdoor space that totals approximately 1.2 acres.
The ground-breaking ceremony for SoMi was held on September 29, 2021 and was attended by Mayor Barbara Halliday, Hayward Chamber of Commerce President and CEO, Kim Huggett, and Scott Menard, President and COO of Homes Built For America.

“We’re excited to repurpose this underutilized area of Mission Boulevard into new housing options for Hayward and Greater Bay Area residents,” said Scott Clark, Chairman and CEO of Homes Built For America. “Today marks the beginning of a new chapter for South Hayward, which has become one of the most sought-after cities in the region. We believe that SoMi will further add to the vibrance and character of the city.”

Residents at SoMi will enjoy easy access to San Francisco, Oakland, and Silicon Valley via Interstate 880, the South Hayward BART Station, and the VTA bus line along Mission Boulevard.

Model homes at SoMi are scheduled to open in early 2022. Learn more at
