RED CANYON REDMOND
Filling a Housing Need in the Community
With so many rent-burdened residents in the region, the addition of Red Canyon is critical to helping solve Central Oregon’s housing crisis. It is a unique project, spread across two sites just 300 feet apart among other multi-family and single-family homes. The client wanted to maximize the number of housing units while providing quality homes that integrate into the community. During the design process, Pinnacle was able to save $130,000 by fast-tracking the schedule and submitting the plans for permitting before an increase in permit fees.
Canal North was a challenging site with space for one 3-story building. The exterior design drew inspiration from townhomes with vertical and horizontal siding patterns to break down the scale of the building. The building includes an office for easy access to the property manager and 29 two- and three-bedroom homes. A playground provides an oasis for children, and well-lit walking paths connect residents to their homes from the parking lot.
Canal South consists of two three-story buildings, including 38 homes and a community room. The unit mix includes one, two, and three bedrooms to provide a variety of options. A courtyard with landscaping and seating creates an outdoor community space for gathering. The exterior design mimics Canal North tying the two developments together.
All homes have private outdoor patios with storage. Large windows bring in daylight, and efficient and open floorplans create a base for family living.
