Formerly used for lumberyard storage, the one-acre property slated for the new construction of Riverside Apartments will become home to a 23-unit affordable, multifamily complex designed to serve low-income families with children. All units have either two or three bedrooms with ample living space incorporating a great room with an open kitchen/dining area/living area, and a breakfast bar. Community amenities will include a community room, laundry room, playground, a mini soccer field, and a centrally located picnic/BBQ area. The development will offer parking for cars in addition to bicycle parking.
The project incorporates sustainable construction best practices, with an emphasis on energy and water conservation. The property, anticipated to be Net Zero, will incorporate photo voltaic solar panels on the roof, solar hot water heating, and rainwater harvesting to water the drought-tolerant landscaping. The units will feature Energy Star appliances, LED lighting, high-efficiency heating, and energy-conserving windows and insulation. Wherever practical, the project will incorporate recycled and repurposed materials. The property is being built by Judson Builders, Inc., designed by J.E. Armstrong Architects, Inc., and will be managed by FPI Management, Inc.
