Builder Magazine’s “2016 Builder of the Year” CalAtlantic Homes hopes to start construction in December on its 110-unit multifamily project Fincher Fields at Cooley Station. The site is situated on 7.8 acres at Recker Road and Cooley Loop North.
Cooley Station is a Master Planned Development designed on a neo-traditional town center and neighborhood concept. Fincher Fields will include a large ramada with two barbeque stations, a community pool, formal garden areas, recreation spaces for children and adults, benches and other pedestrian amenities.
All buildings in the plan feature Mission-style architecture in three different color schemes. The design includes large windows, architectural pop-outs, wrought iron accents and multiple styles of garage doors and trim for visual variety.
Landscaping covers 44 percent of the net area and includes 12 types of trees, 15 shrub and accent plants, and eight types of ground covers. Varied landscaping layouts help distinguish the units from one another on each of the development’s 2,500SF lots.
