Permanent supportive affordable housing


Sage Commons is a new permanent supportive housing facility with 53‐units serving those at risk for homelessness in Santa Rosa, California. With their very own apartment unit, and integrated supportive services within the facility, residents will be lifted up and gain renewed life skills in a vibrant downtown neighborhood. The building is a single 3‐story 36,000 SF wood framed structure with major frontage along downtown College Avenue. The building forms an internal private garden court which faces south and will contain community gardens, benches, trees and covered walkways. There is a covered bike shelter in the courtyard which will contain 56 bicycles and a bicycle repair station. There is a centrally located elevator which serves all floors. There will be 53 studio apartments with air conditioning, private bathrooms and a full kitchen. All the apartments are located along a wide continuous balcony and the units have been clustered into 3 groupings that center around amenity spaces. These amenity spaces include a fitness room on each floor, a lounge on each floor and a common laundry/lounge. On the first floor there is a 24/7 security office that is visually connected to the entry and the courtyard. The first floor also includes offices, meeting rooms, a decontamination room with a separate bathroom and a large meeting room with an open kitchen for instructional purposes.
