VISTA, CA - Affirmed Housing Group celebrated the grand opening of Paseo Pointe, a mixed-use affordable apartment community. The event, located at 325 South Santa Fe, Vista, CA 92083, included speakers Senator Patricia Bates, State of California; Deputy Mayor John Aguilar, City of Vista; and Jim Silverwood, President and CEO of Affirmed Housing Group, among others.
The Vista Community Clinic will also present the project with a Smoke-Free Champion Award. With abundant amenities, a central location near mass transit, affordable rents, and a smoke-free environment, Paseo Pointe is one of Vista's premier family communities.
Paseo Pointe consists of 69 residences: 3 studio, 21 one-bedroom, 24 two-bedroom, and 21 three-bedroom homes. Paseo Pointe is comprised of two, three-story buildings connected by a pedestrian bridge, plus a third standalone building. The mixed-use development contains ground-floor retail space, central management offices, a community room with kitchen, laundry facilities, a computer room, a library, an outdoor courtyard with barbeques, ample green space, and a tot lot. The tot lot is in view of the laundry room and other common areas to facilitate parental supervision of children at play.
The community is also within walking distance from the Vista Transit Center, a stop along the SPRINTER light rail and the BREEZE bus line. Paseo Pointe was designed by Studio E Architects. The general contractor was Wermers; the civil engineer was Kettner Leweck Engineering; and the landscape architect was Darsono Design Associates, Inc. The community serves households earning between 30%-60% of San Diego County's AMI.
James Silverwood, President of Affirmed Housing Group, states, "It's very rewarding to celebrate the grand opening of Paseo Pointe. Not only does this community offer affordable homes to 69 individuals and families, we have built these homes near mass transit to help reduce the need for personal vehicles. That is a sustainable achievement that affects both the residents and the entire community."
