Laurel Grove / Park Ave Apts.

This site unites family and senior housing in a transit-oriented district near the planned high speed rail terminal. Laurel Grove Apartments will offer affordable family apartments in a new four-story building comprised of flats and apartments. Park Avenue Apartments will include affordable senior apartments in a four story over podium building with shared outdoor space on every floor to allow daylight into the corridor. Community rooms for both developments face each other across an open space that allows for joint activities. The sustainable design features photovoltaic panels, solar thermal, and enhanced ventilation.
