Summer 2018 has been a productive season for the Aptos Village Project.
- Paving is complete for Aptos Village Way. This new street, which runs parallel to Soquel Drive, will provide an integral connection between Trout Gulch Road and Aptos Creek Road. The street includes parking on each side, as well as wide sidewalks to help ensure a walk able, safe environment for pedestrians.
- The parking lots are paved for the majority of the Phase One project, with landscape next on the to-do list. The parking lots are about one-third pervious paving with large detention basins below ground to mitigate runoff. The landscape also will include bioswales and more rain gardens.
- Construction of the six cluster homes, located just past the new townhomes on Granite Way, is making great progress. Current work on these residences includes cabinet installation, laying tile and wood flooring, and adding finishing touches. The three-bedroom cluster homes are slightly larger than a townhome, ranging from about 1,800 to 2,200 square feet with more living/dining/family room space to accommodate larger families. For more information about purchasing a home, contact (http://www.theaptosvillage.com/residential/).
- The majority of building exteriors are nearing completion and work is commencing on the interior of these spaces, including residential condos and commercial areas. Building 7 includes three two-bedroom condos and Building 3 includes one-bedroom condos, many with a bonus room and all with elevator access.
Also, the utility tie-in work happening on Soquel Drive for the new Parade Street is to be completed by August 10. To mitigate traffic delays, work will now occur between 9 p.m. and 5 a.m. Sunday to Thursday.
