CVHC To Grand Open Apartments In Palm Springs
The Indio-based Coachella Valley Housing Coalition will hold a grand opening of its newest affordable rental housing development on September 12. A 66-unit second phase of CVHC’s award-winning Coyote Run Apartments in Palm Springs was built to accommodate the heavy demand for more affordable housing within the city.
Coyote Run II is on Sunrise Way just north of San Rafael.
“The Coachella Valley Housing Coalition is proud of the strong working relationship we have built with the city of Palm Springs to help make this beautiful new housing development possible,” said John F. Mealey, executive director of the Coachella Valley Housing Coalition. “Coyote Run II is one more housing option for large low-income families in need of decent affordable housing near their jobs.”
Coyote Run II builds on the success of the existing Coyote Run development directly adjoined to the north on Sunrise Way. The design, architecture, layout and materials used in the construction of Coyote Run II flow as an extension of the existing development. The development consists of one- to four-bedroom, one- and two-story units in a townhouse design. Units range is size from 650 to 1,376 square feet. Open floor plans within the units and building placement throughout the complex ensure maximum free space for the needs of the larger families that the project serves. Large courtyards are designed around building openings, providing tenants with large open areas, communal benches and barbeques, and play structures for the kids. The grounds also feature three tot lots, a community swimming pool, restrooms, laundry facilities, and a basketball play area.
Coyote Run II is managed by Hyder and Co. Services currently offered at Coyote Run, including an on-site after-school drop-in program, morning and afternoon Head Start Programs, and an all day child-care program, extend to residents of Coyote Run II as well.
Coyote Run Apartments was completed in 1993. That year, the complex earned the California Chapter of the American Planning Association’s “Planning Project Award,” Builder Magazine’s “Merit Award” and the Inland Empire Design Institute’s “Design Excellence Award.”
