Located on a former industrial site, this development features a revitalized, pedestrian-friendly streetscape adjacent to a neighborhood park, schools, and a new community gathering space. Clark Commons offers attractive, affordable, workforce housing that blends seamlessly into the surrounding market-rate, master-planned community. A new public park was created as part of this project and has increased the quality of living both for new residents and the surrounding community. A rich amenities package and resident services are featured, including job skills training and after-school tutoring. Community amenities for residents include a computer lab, tot lot, outdoor seating, BBQs, fire pits, and picnic areas for family time and community interaction. Bold, contemporary designs with open floorplans feature private outdoor decks in each unit, mirroring market-rate quality apartments for the local work force.

From the Judges
Urban base works well in relationship to pedestrians, the streetscape, and the surrounding community; lots of amenities; friendly elevation; embraces the street.
