THE JASMINE SENIOR APARTMENTS

Built on a former school site, KD Partners obtained the right to develop 150 affordable senior rental units and a 17,803 square foot Senior's Center—both designed by JZMK Partners that will serve the entire community of Fountain Valley. At an approximate construction cost of $4 million, the project also includes 63 for sale senior condominiums (designed by someone else).

This community is surrounded by several existing single family detached home neighborhoods. The design is sensitive to the scale, proportions and site lines of the existing neighbors.

In order to gain a maximum number of units on this site and still respect the neighboring communities of one- and two-story homes, the plan called for a three-story apartment building to be placed in the center of the site, while the buildings bordering Bushard Street and neighboring houses were reduced to two stories. A direct path from the apartments leads to the Senior's Center and all of its facilities.
