Aimco acquired the 1968 built project, originally named Madera Vista, in 2011 for $43.6M and invested an additional $33m to transform the site into one of Marin’s premier apartment communities. The Repositioning plan included an architectural enhancement to the residential buildings, new interior floorplans centered around the open stylized foodie kitchens and incorporating previously unused space to create several penthouse units complete with separate great rooms and large rooftop decks. In addition to the units, the developer added a new clubhouse, wine bar and fitness center. The outdoor resident spaces include a Zero edge pool, an outdoor kitchen and fire-pit area, which all take advantage of the breathtaking views.
The resident clubhouse is designed with materials and colors to reflect the local esthetics of Marin. Custom furniture pieces were handcrafted by local artisans, in some cases using the same white oak as the architectural woodwork used throughout. Fabrics were hand selected for texture, color and natural fibers that soften the spaces. The overall experience is that of a modern and luxurious retreat.
