Tynan Village Mixed Use
Wald, Ruhnke and Dost Architects was retained by Monterey County Housing Authority to provide architectural design services for this mixed-use project, providing low-income housing and revitalizing a neglected area of downtown Salinas. This urban infill project is located near community bus lines on a major transportation corridor.
The design provides 171 residential units, ranging from one-bedroom to four-bedroom configurations. The project concept was driven by a need for attractive yet affordable "work-force" housing located close to necessary retail and commercial services, with consideration for pedestrian convenience and transportation alternatives. Approximately 13,000 square feet of the building at the street level facing is reserved for store-front commercial space.
The project provides both garage and surface parking with outdoor community spaces incorporated into the site design.
A decade earlier, WR&D completed Plaza Grande Apartments, another multi-family housing project, in Salinas for the same client.
