Crossland was the General Contractor for the Baker School Apartments, a five-acre site of a former school that was purchased by the Del West Group. When the previous GC didn’t meet expectations, we took over the construction of the four separate three-story buildings on the site. A mix of stucco, brick, and metal panel, each building also has exterior balconies. The buildings are laid out in a rectangle with one in each corner, and in between the buildings is a communal courtyard.
As a community development of 142 units, these are tenanted buildings with a clubhouse attached to one of them where the residents can hold events. There’s also a big playground, a dog park, bike racks, a reading room, a fitness room, and a children’s computer room. In the courtyard there are grills, picnic tables, and covered play areas. It’s a great asset for the community, with monthly events for residents and locals alike.
