Building Designed for Livability
This development has one three-story Type V-A building of wood construction built on a post-tensioned slab on grade. Designed as an updated version of the 3-story walk up, modeled after market rate rental housing.
The apartment flats have secured limited access entry with private entrances located on 7 interior stair corridors with access to 12 units per staircase. Since the units are not located on lond double-loaded corridors, tenants will have no cooking odor or noise issues and will have reduced common area energy usage and costs. The opportunity for tenants to interact with their neighbors is increased because there are only four units per entry level. Each individual unit contains 9′ high ceilings and the units have large windows to allow more natural light to reach all parts of the unit, enhancing day-lighting and decreasing energy cost/usage. A solar PV system will provide 8% of the electricity for the development. All of the units have private patios, balconies or Juliet balconies, many have mountain views. Main level units on Trenton and Tamarac Streets will have private exterior stoops allowing front door street level access.
