Avalon Senior Housing

location:Emeryville, CA
owner:East Bay Asian Local Development Corporation
completion:September 2000

This mixed-use project includes 67-units of affordable senior housing, as well as ground floor commercial space. The four-story newly constructed building is located at a prominent Emeryville intersection, and acts as a landmark building at the entry to the city. It is situated at the apex of two main diagonal arteries, on a triangular site. The rounded corner of the building is reminiscent of buildings that were created to fit these triangular, flatiron sites at key intersections. In addition to the housing units, the 52,000 square foot project includes on-site amenities for residents, such as a community room and kitchen, laundry facilities, an interior courtyard, outdoor decks, and a fenced garden.
