Crescent Park Apartments
Richmond , CA

The design for this renovation project consisting of 378-units of multi-family affordable housing was started in 2005. The complex is comprised of twenty-four garden apartment buildings and several accessory buildings on 24.4 acres, equaling four city blocks. The renovation included remodeling the dwelling units and exterior skin of the apartment buildings, upgrading the site landscaping, and adding onto the Resource Center with a new and larger community room with kitchen. The existing community room is to be remodeled into the new rental offices for property management, while the existing offices are to be converted into a maintenance facility. A major part of the renovation is to install photovoltaic systems. Other improvements include new ADA units, new trash enclosures, a new play structure, improving site drainage and building signage, and adding site lighting and security cameras. Construction started in late Summer 2007, and is supposed to be completed in late Summer 2009.

Estimated construction contract: $44 million
