Project: Par Terra Apartments
Location: Newcastle, Washington
Client: R. D. Manning
Completed: 2002

Located on a promontory point overlooking the city of Newcastle and Coal Creek Valley, this site offers numerous opportunities to take advantage of splendid views.

To make the most of this oddly-shaped site, three 4-story buildings were positioned along the outer edges of the property, reserving the inner court for visitor parking and pedestrian walkways. Resident parking is tucked under each building, neatly out of view. Spacious floor plans and numerous large windows allow for sunlight penetration and views from each unit.

In addition to solving site and design problems, CDA worked with the newly incorporated City of Newcastle to satisfy municipal concerns regarding building height, fire protection, and site access.
