CO- is the development manager and designer of a new 100% affordable community of 100 family and farmworker apartments in Hollister, CA. The 4.6-acre community is envisioned as a series of 3-story breezeway-type buildings organized around a central community hub for outdoor recreation and activity areas. The site is anchored by a single-story community building that houses indoor recreation spaces such as community rooms, fitness centers, and after-school activity areas, in addition to leasing and management offices and various residence services facilities. Outdoor recreation amenities include tot-lots and play areas, a pickleball court, BBQ’s and communal gathering spaces, open activity areas, as well shaded seating pockets. The proposed site plan and overall design are inspired not only by Hollister’s rich agricultural heritage but also by the site’s vibrant setting surrounded by newer community amenities constructed as part of the overall master-planned community.
CO- is providing development project management and design services in support of the new community. The 100 units of critically needed affordable housing will serve low- and extremely low-income families and agricultural workers earning between 30-60% area median income (AMI). The project has been submitted for entitlements and is anticipated to break ground in 2024.
