Story

Situated nearly in the center of the Alameda Point Master Plan, Corsair Flats serves as a transitional area between three-story and six-story massing and features two separate residential buildings, a 70-unit apartment community targeting low-income families and a 60-unit apartment community for low-income seniors. The two buildings are separated by a landscaped mid-block parklet. The ground floor for both buildings includes amenity spaces (manager office, service coordinator office, computer labs, fitness centers, and bike storage), apartment units, and structured on-grade garage accessed off of B-Street. The upper floors (2nd-4th) wrap around an open courtyard located on the podium level. The family building podium level consists of the community room and landscaped active courtyard. The senior building podium level also has an active landscaped courtyard. Both of these courtyard spaces have a visual connection with each other. As an affordable development, the team had to be very selective about certain design elements and materials to maintain the same level of architecture as the market-rate apartments around Corsair Flats. The architecture for both the senior and family buildings is inspired by the existing naval base buildings. The architecture between the family and senior buildings relate to the site and to each other, without looking exactly alike.
