Design Approach

The Park Alameda project transformed an infamously blighted and crime ridden 1970’s motel, located
in downtown Alameda, into 62 units of affordable workforce housing. The project included a radical redesign of the façade and a complete renovation of the living units. Two new buildings, the housing office and community room, arose from a once deteriorated parking lot. The project achieved a high GreenPoint rating through an overhaul of the MEP systems, cool roofs, a rooftop solar thermal system, sun shades, low flow plumbing fixtures, energy efficient lighting, and sustainable site features.
