Mirasol Phase II & III Apartment Buildings

Project Description 

Mirasol Phase II Apartment Building is a 60-unit independent living facility designed specifically for seniors. It is located on the 25-acre Mirasol Senior Community campus, which already contains a 49-unit apartment building, 36 single-family and paired homes for seniors, and a 5,600 sf Event Center.

The Mirasol Phase III expansion provides an additional 60 units of independent senior housing in a new 63,594 sq. ft. building. The building has a mix of 40 one-bedroom and 20 two-bedroom/1-bath units, all with private kitchens. The design includes a large common lobby with a shaded veranda on the main floor, and open and screened decks on the second and third floors.

During preconstruction, despite the threat of escalation, the project started within budget and ended with a guaranteed maximum price that was approximately $25,000 below budget.

Our Preconstruction and operations team worked closely with alm2s during preconstruction to provide in-depth drawing review, providing constructability comments and other input to aid alm2s in creating well-detailed drawings and to confirm Green Design and sustainability assumptions. We communicated using design charettes and Procore Project Management software.

Other innovative energy conservation technologies include thermal balanced windows, Energy Star rated lighting fixtures, and appliances. When completed, the building will meet the requirements of the 2009 International Building Code, the 2009 International Energy Code, and the Enterprise Green Communities Criteria.

This project is funded primarily with Low Income Housing Tax Credits.
