City officials and the development team gathered yesterday afternoon to celebrate the opening of Randall, a new affordable apartment complex in Healdsburg, Sonoma County. The development has replaced a former wood mill with 41 affordable homes. Eden Housing partnered with Replay Resorts to head development. Eden will serve as property management for future residents.
Of the 41 units, there will be eight units priced for extremely low-income households, 32 for very low-income households, and one moderate-income apartment for the on-site manager. The extremely-low housing will be reserved for project-based voucher referrals from the Sonoma County Housing Authority. The 32 low-income apartments will be chosen from the Eden lottery application waitlist. Rents for those apartments are expected to start in the low $1,100’s per month for a one-bedroom, under $1,350 for a two-bedroom, and under $1,550 for a three-bedroom.
Apartment sizes will vary with 19 one-bedrooms, 11 two-bedrooms, and 11 three-bedrooms. Parking will be included for 41 cars. Bicycle parking is included, but the capacity is not specified. Residents will be offered a variety of amenities inside the building, including a community room, lounge, an open kitchen, a community garden, and an open-air courtyard. The open space will even include barbeque grills and a children’s playground for families.
PYATOK Architecture + Design is responsible for the design. The four-story structure conforms to the narrow, long parcel with awnings above each window to regulate interior comfort. Vertical louver panels create a striking focal point over the outdoor landscaped plaza.
The 0.86-acre parcel is located by Downtown Healdsburg, close to the Russian River and Foss Creek Pathway. Healdsburg is a northern Sonoma County city north of Santa Rosa and south of Geyserville.
Funding was provided by the city, County of Sonoma, the Sonoma County Housing Authority, Replay, Wells Fargo, California Community Reinvestment Corporation, Federal Home Loan Bank of San Francisco and California Tax Credit Allocation Committee. West Creek Builders was the general contractor responsible for building the apartments.
