Project Description

Parc Derian Affordable Housing

Parc Derian is a “slab on grade” podium-type housing project on 2.2 urban infill acres in the heart of the Irvine Business Complex (IBC), part of the City of Irvine’s Vision Plan. Designed by KTGY architects, this 80-unit affordable workforce project was made possible through a public/private partnership between various stakeholders, including C & C Development, Innovative Housing Opportunities, Lennar Corporation and the City of Irvine Community Land Trust. The project features almost a half acre of open space and 5,000 sf of community facilities. Residents enjoy amenities that include fitness and community rooms, on-site laundry facilities and secured bike storage. A second floor courtyard accommodates a swimming pool, tot lot, barbeque/fireplace pavilion, and community garden space. In addition, occupants have access to social services, such as educational and health programming.

Comprehensive services provided by the Fuscoe team included construction staking, mapping and full civil engineering plans, as well as a SWPPP and WQMP. A modular wetland was incorporated into the site design to treat water runoff. The timing of the design and construction schedule was challenging and crucial to obtaining project funding. In addition, Fuscoe’s new design tool, an FAA-registered UAV drone, was utilized to create a 3D point cloud of millions of survey grade elevations. That information was then translated into a 3D model for visualization of the project in context with the surrounding site.
