Riverfront Santa Cruz

As part of the city’s downtown-specific plan to reactivate the San Lorenzo riverfront area, this project aims to increase high-density housing and activate the under-utilized portions of downtown Santa Cruz and create a new and vibrant destination on the Santa Cruz River Walk. Divided into 3 separate building massings, the design reflects the varied architectural styles seen in the surrounding area and includes both traditional and modern aesthetics. Reconnecting downtown to the riverfront visually and socially is a key goal for this project. To achieve this, the site was designed to incorporate outdoor pedestrian passageways and gathering spaces. Riverfront Santa Cruz stands 7-stories tall with 1 level of below-grade parking. The ground floor includes residential amenities such as lobbies, fitness facilities, bike parking, community rooms and commercial space.Theproject has a total of 175 units and includes integrated affordable units, plus resident and commercial parking.
