Lafayette Town Center

Lafayette, CA

Planned as a vibrant part of an emerging transit village adjacent to the Lafayette BART station, this mixed-use project contains 82 luxury condominiums above two levels of underground parking. The C-shaped building plan, which ranges in height from three stories on the inner courtyard to five stories on the western elevation, is a mix of one, two and three bedroom units ranging in size from 800 sf to 1,350 sf. Situated above a stone base, the building will be clad with siding and enhanced plaster treatments. Visual variety within the design will help break up the building mass, creating the appearance of several smaller structures. A landscaped outdoor public area is planned as a focal point along the path to BART which will align with the center of the condominium’s courtyard and overlook the creek. 2,500 sf of community space and an outdoor plaza and sculpture park with a covered stone loggia will also serve the surrounding neighborhood.
