Arroyo Green Apartments

  • Redwood City, California
  • MidPen Housing

Located on the San Francisco Peninsula, Arroyo Green Apartments maximizes this infill site with 117 affordable senior living units to help meet an urgent need for affordable senior housing.

The contemporary Neoclassical architectural style of the seven-story building blends in with the fabric of the community. The building framework is broken down in layers giving it a strong base, midsection and top. Two- and three-story massing scale down to create a more pedestrian-friendly environment for the multimodal trail extension and park along Redwood Creek. The park edge with natural elements, historic markers, community art, and a variety of seating options, provides an inviting, interactive public amenity between the residents and the neighborhood.

The first floor includes a neighborhood daycare center for infants through preschool-aged children, ideal for the seniors engaging with the children. Views from the daycare classrooms and the outdoor play areas will take full advantage of the creekside setting. Two levels of parking are available for residents and daycare staff. Studios, one- and two-bedroom units on upper floors open towards the creek encircling an active podium plaza. Community room, social services, computer and game room, and library spaces are provided to keep the senior residents socially engaged.
