Midstate Construction Completes Camphora Apartments

Camphora Apartments

May 2017 


Owner Eden Housing and general contractor Midstate Construction Corporation recently completed Camphora Apartments in Soledad, CA.

Designed by KTGY Architecture + Planning of Oakland, this project includes demolition of existing site and new construction of a 44 unit, two story, wood framed affordable housing community.

This project began with the complete demolition of existing farmworker housing built in 1960. Site renovations include onsite well and storage facility fire pump, photovoltaic panels, freeway sound wall, built-in BBQ areas, play areas, low water landscaping with drip under sod.

A new sewer system with lift station was created and tunneled below U.S. Route 101 and a Union Pacific Railroad line to tie into a City of Soledad force main that serves the state prison. Work was successfully coordinated with the correctional facility to tie into the sewer force mains without affecting their inhabitants.

Each unit has independent climate control via attached heat pumps. Each unit receives hot water via a local insta-hot water heaters. Combined with ubiquitous photovoltaic panels, onsite well and sewer, residents experience very low monthly utility bills. 

Camphora was certified as LEED AP Homes Platinum.
