Zero Net Energy

Carlos Ortega Villas was just awared by the American Public Works Association in 2016. It is a 73 unit affordable senior housing project.  The apartment buildings are mostly single story except for the two-story Resident Service Building which includes a manager’s unit.  The site is 3.5 acres and is located west of Washington Street and south of Avenue of the States and is situated next to commercial districts and a private health care facility.   

This is the perfect location for affordable housing answering the on-going demand for senior housing in the desert.  It is an infill project benefiting from walking distance to amenities such as retail, clinics, parks and transportation.  The project is also the first Zero Net Energy Housing project in the Coachella Valley where the seniors benefit from very little utility bills.
