Parkview Court

Parkview Court

Parkview Court, a 59-unit condominium for active seniors, sits at the corner of a 20-acre, infill, master-planned community. Designed around a central courtyard which serves as a passive recreation space for residents and a landscaped light well to the surrounding units, the building includes spacious one- and two-bedroom condominiums. Community amenities include a club/lounge room and exercise room.

With its three-story scale and modern approach to traditional Craftsman and seaside vernacular architecture, the complex acts as an anchor for the entire community. The architectural vocabulary emphasizes familiarity and timelessness. The pastel palette creates a cheerful, seaside resort-like environment, which is reinforced by the use of canopies, white balcony detailing, gable roofs, horizontal wood siding and a sunny interior courtyard. Both building and location are ideal for active seniors, with a scenic public park and a public recreation building across the street, as well as a popular, bi-weekly farmers’ market.
