CARLSBAD, Calif. - Everything old is new again for Wakeland's residents at Vista Las Flores in Carlsbad, California. The community - which Wakeland developed with our partners at San Diego Interfaith Housing Foundation in 2002 - recently concluded a rehabilitation project which revamped the entire property, including all 28 apartments and the community room.
The revitalized site now has rooftop solar panels which offset 100 percent of common area and 25 percent of residents' energy use, a new playground/BBQ area and two electric vehicle charging stations.
Representatives from the County of San Diego and the City of Carlsbad joined Wakeland and our partners on February 7 to celebrate the grand "re-opening" of Vista Las Flores and tour the newly renovated buildings.
"Vista Las Flores marked a milestone for Wakeland as the first multifamily project we completed as lead developer," said Wakeland President and CEO Ken Sauder at the ceremony. "We are proud that it will continue to provide much-needed affordable homes to people in Carlsbad for many more years."
Homes at Vista Las Flores are reserved for people who make 50 percent to 60 percent of the Area Median Income - or $53,500 to $64,200 per year for a family of four. In addition, three of the apartments are targeted to households that have a family member with a developmental disability.
