Santa Clara Sustainable Master Plan
The Core Companies worked with OpenScope to develop initial design ideas for a six-acre city-owned site in Santa Clara. The unique “agrihood” concept for farm-based housing, developed in conjunction with local community members, won over the City Council, who decided to award the project to Core following a very competitive RFP process in 2015.
Plans for the site include a mixture of affordable and market rate housing and a professionally managed farm with open space available for community use. 165 units will be set aside as permanently affordable senior housing, and a portion of the large apartment building will be rented at below market rate as workforce housing.
OpenScope prepared the first entitlements submittal for The Core Companies in December of 2016.
