Multifamily Rental Housing
LEED Platinum certified
Sofia Lofts is a 17-unit multifamily rental development consisting of two modern apartment buildings inserted on either side of a historic house in Golden Hill, a mixed-use neighborhood one mile east of downtown San Diego, California. The Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Platinum-certified buildings surround a generous interior courtyard landscaped to serve as a shared space for informal resident gatherings, special events, and access to parking. The family-run development company’s integrated design/build process streamlined the construction schedule, improved flexibility, and reduced costs.
