- Mar 10, 2016
Mountain View, Calif.—A Gold winner in the MHN 2015 Excellence Awards Best Operations Category, Madera Apartments is a transit-oriented multifamily infill development, just 57 steps from the train station. The property encompasses two city blocks, each containing a south-facing private landscaped courtyard, separated by a public paseo affording pedestrian access across the site. Each building steps down gradually in height from four to two stories, with individual stoops and porches providing pedestrian access around the perimeter.
The property, developed by Prometheus Real Estate Group Inc., achieves the highest rents in the entire Silicon Valley, ranging from $2,514 to $6,514 per month for its 203 one- and two-bedroom units. Units range in size from 745 to 1,370 square feet.
The design also aims to be different and memorable. The roof deck features a fire pit, outdoor kitchen, heated sand and, of course, mountain views. The digital game room boasts a 77,000-piece Lego sculpture on the wall, an Xbox 360 featuring MS Kinect, a Wii and a PlayStation. The herb garden has plant markers with QR codes which, when scanned, generate recipes. In addition, the property is Green Point rated, with features that include 203 secured parking stalls and storage for bicycles to encourage bike transportation with do-it-yourself repair shops, and electric charging stations for plug-in vehicles.
The community also offers high-tech features, such as smart parcel lockers that send automatic notifications to residents so they can access their packages 24/7 as well as the Hub (Active Building), an online portal that informs residents of the latest happenings at the property and area, and allows them to pay their rent, send in a service request or store their lease documents.
