A substantial rehabilitation has completed at the aging Azusa Apartments including vastly improved interiors, Resident amenities, and common space. Sustainable improvements are seen in energy and water efficiency upgrades that include a new “cool” roofs, dual pane windows, new air conditioning units, a solar photovoltaic system, domestic solar hot water panels, and drought-resistant landscape with new irrigation system that minimizes water use. Within the units, Residents enjoy Energy Star appliances and fixtures, formaldehyde-free cabinets, sustainable hard flooring, “green” carpet and pads.
The common space is upgraded with a new contemporary play structure, Resident garden, picnic and BBQ area, as well as an ADA accessible community building that houses a full kitchen, computer lab, and learning center.
Azusa Apartments are purchased by the Developer to preserve the affordability of the community from being converted to market rate.
