The Town of Yountville requires builders of larger projects to provide work force housing as part of the approval process. When the Bardessono Hotel was build, they were required to provide 25 such units which are now complete and being rented. Here are excerpts from the article in today’s the Napa Register:
Yountville’s new affordable apartment project, Arroyo Grande Villas, will provide 25 families with housing that rents for as little as $715 per month, sponsors announced.
Napa Valley Community Housing coordinated the construction of the project, located on Finnell Road next to The Bardessono hotel and restaurant.
The $8.4 million project is on land donated by the Bardessono family as a requirement for the construction of The Bardessono luxury property.
The development consists of five buildings with 10 one-bedroom units, seven two-bedroom units, eight three-bedroom units, a community room, manager’s office and a laundry room.
Low and very low-income families will pay between $715 and $1,189 in rent each month, which is considered affordable rent in Napa County, officials said.
Napa Valley Community Housing received a grant from Sustainable Napa County for a solar installation that will help to power site lighting and the community room building.
All 25 units come with tankless water heaters, paints with low volatility, dual-paned windows and Daiken split heating/cooling systems to improve energy efficiency. Sunseri Construction also committed to recycling the majority of the construction material.
