Not in our backyard! NBA star Steph Curry launches opposition to housing for the poor on site near his multi-million dollar home because he has ‘major privacy and safety concerns’ with three‐story town homes looming directly behind their property
NBA star Steph Curry issued an official opposition to the development of a row of affordable housing units that are slated to be build behind his multi-million dollar mansion.
The Golden State Warriors star and his wife, Ayesha, sent a letter to the town of Atherton opposing the project, which would see up to 16 three-story townhouses spring up in the middle of his uber-wealthy California neighborhood.
The Currys said the housing project would pose as a threat to ‘safety and privacy’ of them and their kids, nothing that the location and height of the townhouses residents leering views into their $31million mansion.
Their neighbors have also spoken out against the project, with some saying building affordable-minded homes in a town where single acres go for $8million made no sense.

In a letter sent to the town on January 18, the Currys expressed concerns over the new homes ‘looming’ over theirs.
‘As Atherton residents… we have been following along with the housing element updates with special interest in the 23 Oakwood property,’ they wrote.
