Apr 29, 2016Tanimura & Antle recognized for new employee housing
Tanimura & Antle and the County of Monterey were recognized at The Monterey Bay Economic Partnership (MBEC) Second Annual Regional Economic Summit for working together to develop the “Spreckels Crossing” farm employee housing community.
Through a cooperative approach, housing is being built in less than a year for accommodations of approximately 800 of Tanimura & Antle’s employees.
The company hopes that “Spreckels Crossing” will serve as an example to other large businesses in the Monterey County as housing for seasonal employees continues to be an issue, Tanimura & Antle said. T&A employees have begun to move into the fully furnished apartments in early April, with the final phase of the community buildings to be completed in June.
A formal ribbon cutting ceremony and celebration will take place later this summer.
