North Park Senior Housing

San Diego, CA

North Park Seniors is an award winning affordable senior housing project open to all. It is one of only a handful of these facilities serving the LGBT community in the country. The project includes 76 affordable senior apartments and eight permanent supportive housing studios for formerly homeless seniors. The overall project includes 194 total units with 118 market rate units. The complex is sustainable, transit- oriented and mixed-income friendly.

Our team of landscape architects provided specialized design for this underserved demographic with street level, podium and roof top landscapes. On the street level a double tree lined ‘parklet’ with seating and dog stations was provided. The podium level provided a series of outdoor rooms and connecting corridors. The spaces provided included deep seating lounges, an outdoor fireplace, elevated seat walls and some with a community garden, and an outdoor barbecue and a dining facility accented with overhead bistro lighting. On the roof top level, a rose garden was designed with pots on top of an elevated deck for a sunny overlook of the city. We provided services for pre and post construction including as-builts and bond exoneration after the project had been completed.
