‘Wealth Gap’ Advocate Stephen Curry Has ‘Major Concerns’ About Low-Income Housing Next To His Mansion

The Golden State Warriors’ Stephen Curry is pushing to block a low-income multifamily housing development from being built near his $30 million Bay Area mansion.

There are reportedly plans to develop 16 townhouses on a 1.5-acre plot of land near Curry’s home, leading the family to say in a letter that they had “major concerns in terms of both privacy and safety with three-story townhomes looming directly behind us,” according to The Almanac, a local newspaper.

“As Atherton residents … we have been following along with the housing element updates with special interest in the 23 Oakwood property,” the Currys wrote in a letter to the town. “We hesitate to add to the ‘not in our backyard’ (literally) rhetoric, but we wanted to send a note before today’s meeting. Safety and privacy for us and our kids continues to be our top priority and one of the biggest reasons we chose Atherton as home.”

Curry reportedly demanded that the town build taller fencing to protect his property and add more landscaping to protect his privacy.

“We kindly ask that the town adopts the new housing element without the inclusion of 23 Oakwood,” the Currys wrote. “Should that not be sufficient for the state, we ask that the town commits to investing in considerably taller fencing and landscaping to block sight lines onto our family’s property.”

The nearly 18,000 square-foot mansion sits on a 2-acre estate that is located in one of the most expensive zip codes in the U.S. in Atherton, California, according to Front Office Sports. The seven-bedroom home has nine bathrooms, a movie theater, a full bar, a wine cellar, a pool, and a sundeck.

The Washington Free Beacon noted that Curry is a hardcore Democrat who has appeared alongside Presidents Barack Obama and Joe Biden to promote their agendas.

The report said that Curry joined the nonprofit NinetyToZero in 2021 to promote leftist social and economic causes.

“Bridging the racial wealth gap is one of the biggest challenges of our generation,” Curry said at the time. “Uncovering solutions and creating opportunities is something I’m profoundly committed to.”
