Manoa Valley Senior Living
600 unit development of affordable senior living units in Manoa Valley. Minimal impact to the site through careful planning maintains the verdant forest of native trees along a thriving riparian ecosystem. Only invasive trees to be removed to make room for the low profile timber structures on pilings oriented to maintain flow of fresh breezes and natural drainage. Designed to meet Living Building Challenge and to qualify for 201H affordable housing LIHTC program.
Natural arboretum provides active trails for both residents and the community. Preserving all native trees on the site and setting buildings back from the road ensures the project has little to no impact on the existing neighborhood. All existing roadways to be reused for internal circulation requiring little to no civil work on the site.
