Eden Housing and the City of Fremont broke ground on a KTGY-designed 90-unit affordable senior housing community in Fremont, Calif.
Located at 47003 Mission Falls Court, the property stands on a 2.2-acre site near transportation, shopping centers and other services. Envisioned by John Wong of East Warren Park LLC, Mission Court Senior Apartments is part of Mission Falls, a new 23.5-acre master plan development near the Interstate 880 . The project will offer a total of 500 residential units and a 15,000-square-foot senior community center.
Mission Court Senior Apartments will include solar photovoltaic panels, low VOC paints for indoor air quality, high-efficiency light fixtures, Energy Star appliances, low flow toilets and showerheads, and drought-resistant landscaping. The project will also pursue a GPR certification. “The contemporary design continues a California legacy of simple, clean lines combined with energy efficiencies to create affordable housing that is sustainable and comparable to market-rate housing,” said Jessica Musick, associate principal of KTGY’s Oakland office, in a prepared statement.
The U-shaped three- and four-story property are designed to create a safe and relaxing interior courtyard, as well as a sound buffer to Warren Avenue and the railway track. The courtyard will feature an outdoor kitchen and a community garden, beside other exterior amenities such as bicycle parking, electrical vehicle and car share parking. Indoor amenities will include a community room, a library and a computer room.
Mission Court Senior Apartments is expected to be completed in November 2018.
