Riverwood Grove
Santa Clara, CA


Riverwood Grove was part of a two-phase, transit-oriented housing development with easy access to a business district, shopping centers, an elementary school, two universities, nearby parks and an amusement park. Likewise, bus and light-rail service stops directly across the street.

As the head of development at MidPen Housing, I collaborated with Veronica on several very successful affordable housing projects in a number of cities in the Bay Area. Veronica is an excellent architect and was instrumental is getting the projects approved and built on time and on budget.
