Formerly the site of the City Library on an active and vibrant Main Street, this 2.1 acre downtown redevelopment includes 58 innovative Podium Flats and Shopkeeper units over 9,000 square feet of Retail Space, plus 30 Urban Townhomes featuring Live/Work units.  Design Guidelines called for Mediterranean-style architecture, which our team interpreted as a Stanford University-inspired contemporary Spanish.  One level of subterranean parking is provided for the podium units, with 2 street level garages for retail spaces.  Two superstructures sit atop the parking podium, each centered on a courtyard garden.  Between the buildings is an inviting walk-street lined by Shopkeeper Units and ending in a resident’s social courtyard in front of the Live/Work Townhomes, envisioned as an outdoor living room.  


The 3-story Townhomes line their garages to a separate gated lane, with south-facing units oriented toward the open space of the high school athletic fields.  The 30 Townhomes were offered in an array of 8 plans, depending upon which ground level and which second level unit was desired.
