As part of California’s first farm-to-table new community in Davis, residents benefit from the amenities in the immediate area, including public parks, bike and walking pathways, and a working 7-acre farm. The Bartlett Commons affordable one-, two-, and three- bedroom apartments feature 62 rental units located in the southwest corner of the development. A 2000-sf community building with on-site property management, fitness room, classroom, and laundry facilities opens to a central courtyard with a playground for children.
In line with Davis’ sustainability and environmental focus, the Cannery community began with low-impact land use. The site is the former home of the Hunt-Wesson tomato cannery, and its central location is just minutes from UC Davis and downtown. The proximity to the city’s network of bicycle and pedestrian paths makes it easy for residents to maneuver through the area, providing for less vehicle use. The project exceeds the requirement of one bicycle parking space per bedroom, and provides a variety of parking options for bikes with carts. To minimize the impact of car parking on the site, the buildings are designed with tuck-under parking that shield the view of parking from the surrounding neighborhood.
