Drs. Julian & Raye Richardson Apartments
Just blocks from City Hall on a site that once was a part of the Central Freeway, this 5-story building (4 stories wood framing over concrete podium) created 120 studio rental units for low-income and formerly homeless individuals. The first floor includes tenant common areas, offices for supportive services, a social-venture bakery & cafe that provides employment training and jobs to building tenants, and additional retail spaces. The building also contains a landscaped courtyard, a living roof, and many green features such as photovoltaic panels.
Cahill self-performed concrete (including decorative board-form), wood framing, and wood siding installation on this project.
