Foothill Farms, Sacramento CA: Affordable Seniors Apartments

Foothill Farms, Sacramento CA: Affordable Seniors Apartments

The Foothill Farms Seniors Apartments are positioned to revitalize a tired stretch of Auburn Blvd in Sacramento, California. The Sacramento Redevelopment Agency worked together with Tower Development and Bridge Housing to reclaim this site, engaging Kuchman Architects to create a pedestrian friendly addition to the community. Three 3-story apartment buildings connected by two story pedestrian bridges surround a central courtyard. Landscaped grounds include a community garden, bocce court, pool and spa area. The project has received a very high GreenPoint Rating of 178. Renovated retail facilities in the second phase of the project will provide additional convenient services to the residents. Construction was completed in 2012.
