The Aspen Wood Apartments project is a four-story, 95-unit residential development located on a 1.39 acre parcel in San Ramon. The parcel used to be home to a commercial bank before the site was rezoned as very-high density residential. The building site had been vacant from the mid-90’s due to the density being too low for affordable development. By conducting Market Analysis, LCA determined the need for at least 300 units of affordable senior housing by 2020, and by designing for this need, a density bonus was received for the site.
The project provides housing for working seniors in a secure environment, nearby to the senior center and other local businesses. The modern design concept complements the new city center designed by Renzo Piano, adding to the diversity of architectural styles that makes the community more vibrant.
