Project Summary

This 90 unit renovation of a thriving Farmworkers Housing Development involved a complete renovation of the site. A community garden, two play areas, and a sports field were intergrated into the site to encourage community interaction. Regrading of the site alleviated bad drainage near the homes and stormwater was managed through the design of a central bioswale. Native and drought tolerant plantings were used and a highly efficient, weather smart irrigation system was installed.
