The Village at Town Center
El Cerrito, California

The Village at Town Center is a 163 dwelling unit, transit-oriented project that spans four city blocks. Each of the 9 apartment buildings is unique in order to respond to varying site conditions, yet the design successfully provides a cohesive development. True to the main intention of the project, The Village creates an accessible residential community between the commuter rail system and the city’s major retail corridor.

The project includes 8,500 square feet of retail space along the city’s commercial corridor. The wood structure accommodates generous open spaces on the ground floor and provides large glass storefronts facing the city sidewalk. Live-work loft units above the retail space provide a transitional use between the commercial street and the apartments beyond. The project was completed in 2006.
