CARMEL VALLEY, CA - Affirmed Housing is pleased to announce the celebration of the groundbreaking for Cielo Carmel on March 4 at 10AM. The event, located on Edgewood bend court will feature speakers: Sherri Lightner, Council president, City of San Diego; James Silverwood, President & CEO, Affirmed Housing; Charmaine Atherton, Senior Vice President, Southern California Community Development, Bank of American Merrill Lynch; and Richard Gentry, President & CEO, San Diego Housing Commission.
Designed to blend harmoniously with its neighbors, Cielo Carmel will offer 197 one, two and three bedroom apartments for families earning 50-60% AMI . Styled in “Big House” architecture, the 17, two-story buildings will incorporate attractive Mediterranean or Bungalow designs with patios, balconies and private-access garages. Community amenities include a clubhouse, swimming pool, playground, community garden, a dog park and on-site management. To control utility costs, Affirmed is building Cielo Carmel with energy standards 15% higher than the newly revised Title 24 requirements. In addition, Cielo Carmel residents will enjoy easy access to Highway 56, a new shopping center and schools.
Built with high energy performance standards, common area amenities will be completely powered by the sun and a water-wise drought tolerant landscape design.
James Silverwood, President of Affirmed Housing Group, states, “Cielo Carmel is designed to facilitate a strong sense of community among residents, and the neighborhood at large. Cielo is an energy efficient community in a central location. We are proud to bring affordable housing to the Carmel Valley neighborhood.”
