Located in Battle Ground, Washington, Alder Pointe Apartments is a 180-unit development that sits in a growing commercial area. The complex is part of an overall master plan with an adjacent commercial development that has businesses, grocery stores, retail shops, and restaurants. Residents benefit from the more urban environment by having many amenities within easy walking distance.
The complex contains three-story buildings with 24-units each; 2-story buildings with garages below second-floor apartments; and dedicated garage buildings. The units range in size from one bedroom to three bedrooms. The units over the garages are considered “starter” units and are smaller in size, geared towards singles and young professionals. The complex also contains a central clubhouse with a community room, a meeting room, a fitness center, and an outdoor pool. Ample landscaping with walking paths and a play structure separate the buildings, creating a park-like setting for residents.
In designing the exterior of the buildings, a simplistic design was employed to that the community amenities in the clubhouse and common areas could be amplified. The exteriors are clad in fiber cement siding using a rich, colorful palette to create a warm and inviting atmosphere. The warmth continues into the units using wood-look luxury vinyl plank flooring throughout the living, dining, and kitchen areas and carpet in the bedrooms. The kitchen also hosts quartz counters and stainless steel appliance packages. When designing the units, providing areas for storage was a key consideration.
