In February 2022 at the annual Multifamily Pillars of the Industry Award Ceremony, The National Association of Home Builders awarded our client, Home Fed Corporation, with the Best Low-Rise Apartment Community for their Residences at Escaya. The Residences at Escaya was designed to provide a “main street” experience with a central village green flanked by boutique shops, community retail stores, and sidewalk cafes. Pedestrian walkways with diagonal and parallel parking spaces were added to further imitate a main street feel.
H&A provided planning and civil design for this 10-acre residential and commercial site. The project includes 273 residential units and 20,000 SF of commercial space and 10,000 SF of Community Purpose Facility (CPF) space. The project also includes a recreation area with a pool and spa, kid play zone, Boys & Girls Club, and various community plazas. We prepared the design review package, rough grading, precise grading, improvement plans, final design plans, and survey.
Project Challenge and Solution
Each of the 14 buildings has a unique and intricate footprint. Therefore, strong coordination with the design and construction team is critical to the success of this project.
The client wanted to provide the most flexible commercial plan regarding access, grade, and utilities to accommodate any future commercial use. This required future planning and anticipation of buyers‘ future needs.
