Permits have been approved For Mirasol Village Block D, a five-structure portion of the Mirasol Village masterplan at 1381 Swallowtail Avenue in Sacramento’s River District. The latest permit shows Block D is expected to add 116 new units and an early childhood education center. The Sacramento Housing and Redevelopment Agency is the property owner and project lead.
According to SVA Architects, responsible for the master plan design, “the existing Twin Rivers low-income housing project was demolished to accommodate this new development, offering a total of 498 units for low-income residents with additional market-rate units also available.”
Block D will cover just 3.25 acres of the 22-acre redevelopment program. Of the five residential structures to be built, there will be a four-story V-shaped apartment block with 86 units and four garden apartment buildings with 30 units. Unit sizes will vary from one-bedrooms to four-bedrooms.
Next to the housing will be the single-story Mirasol Village early childhood education center with 6,500 square feet of floor area. Pressey & Associates is responsible for the building design. The interior will include four classrooms, restrooms, office space, and storage rooms.
Parking will be included for 69 cars across surface parking and 70 bicycles.
SVA Architects is responsible for designing the residential buildings. The podium-style facade will be clad with include stucco, fiber cement siding, and corrugated metal. Around the building will be 46,000 square feet of accessible open space designed by landscape architect Site Design Studio. The open area will include furniture for lounging, outdoor dining, and a children’s playground.
