Bella Vita Affordable Apartments
Designed by Withee Malcolm Architects, this project provides 65 affordable senior residential apartment units over 3,000 sf of commercial space on a 1.22-acre site in the city of Carson. The senior units consist of 58 one-bedroom and seven two-bedroom apartments. The project also includes a 67-space parking garage and 15,150 sf of community space with outdoor seating, community room, theater area, community and podium gardens and 5,590 sf of private open space.
The Fuscoe Engineering team provided entitlement and full engineering services for this project, including research and site evaluation, plot plan, ALTA and topographic surveys, preliminary SUSMP, engineering, street improvement and storm drain plans. Unique aspects of this project site included exceptionally good soil. Due to the quality of the soil, it was possible to percolate the entire stormwater treatment flow into one drywell.
