The all-electric, three-story, L-shaped building is designed in a contemporary agrarian architectural vernacular with colors reflecting fall in Napa. Shed roofs punctuated by two-story townhouse units create building articulation with contemporary architectural details including beam extensions, steel balcony railings at each unit, and corrugated steel siding. A mix of one-, two- and three-bedroom apartments are offered, of which 49 are reserved for families earning 30 percent to 60 percent AMI and one designated as the property manager unit. Amenities include a community room that opens to an outdoor gathering space and community garden, age-appropriate playgrounds, a secure bicycle room, and flex space available for after school programs or adult education.
Different color schemes for each floor establish wayfinding for residents and guests. The energy-efficient community features rooftop solar panels, heat pumps for hot water, EV charging stations, and LED lighting. An elevator makes all units wheelchair accessible and several are accessorized for use by residents with disabilities. A 100-vehicle covered parking area reduces the heat island effect and opens onto an extension of Gasser Drive, which has a new bridge south to Kansas Avenue. The community’s prime location is walkable to a variety of amenities and services including a major shopping center, a movie theater, public transportation, schools, and the Napa Valley Vine Trail.
