ACACIA MEADOWS, Sacramento County, CA

Designed to create a mixed income, mixed age community, Acacia Meadows, when fully built-out, will combine over 300 homes, ranging from for-sale houses, through rental family townhouses and flats to senior independent living apartments. The site plan is based upon the precept that a hierarchy of public and private spaces, with overlapping and gently increasing layers of privacy, promotes informal activity between neighbors, thus enhancing a feeling of community.

Phase I, for 213 affordable family townhouses-over-flats, makes use of efficient units and tuck under parking, opening up a considerable portion of the site to a connected series of mews and courts.

Facing significant community opposition, Larry led an extensive community outreach process, tailoring the Master Plan to include a buffer zone of for-sale, single-family detached homes. The design that evolved from this process won unanimous approval by the Planning Commission.

Program: Master plan of a 9.6 acre site for approximately 280 affordable family units (1-3 bedrooms), a senior independent living building, for-sale detached houses, community center, landscaped grounds and parking.
Construction Type: Phase 1: Two and three-story, Type V, One-Hour construction with tuck-under parking on slab-on-grade foundation.
Client: Community Housing Opportunities Corporation.
Completed: Phase I completed in 2006.
