Tracy Place Apartments


This infill site was located on an empty parcel between an older residential neighborhood and a busy commercial street. With it's walkable proximity to shopping and services it was ideal for an affordable senior project - a much needed facility in central Tracy. The design challenge was to provide the 50 units on a tight one acre site while being sensitive to the surrounding homes. A series of neighborhood workshops were the foundation for the design direction: a stepped mass, with familiar gable forms, that begins as one story and gradually moves to the three story required for the unit mix. The use of rich warm colors and materials including stone veneer and old fashioned landscape including a rose garden help create a peaceful and familiar feel. Tracy Place's waiting list of prospective tenants, and it's excellent connection to the surrounding neighborhood, is proud testament to it's success in meeting a key housing need while being a good neighbor.
