Pinole Vista Apartments

Rehabilitation and Renovation
Pinole, California

Pinole Vista Apartments was originally constructed in 1967 and lies on a prominent hilltop site overlooking the area. There are thirteen 2-story buildings with 4 units each for a total of 52 one and two-bedroom units. The property fell into disrepair over the years and became the focus of concern for the city of Pinole as years of neglect and the poor condition of the property invited criminal activity and was an eyesore in an otherwise attractive community just 20 minutes from San Francisco. A new Owner, a prominent local developer, purchased the property and immediately hired Studio 4 Architecture to completely re-envision the property. The design completely transformed the complex into a diverse community of tenants with new found pride in the newly renovated units and resolved a major issue for the city law enforcement while giving the owner a like-new complex with meticulous architectural detailing which will ensure the viability of the buildings well into the future.
