Sunflower Hill – Livermore is a residential community designed for 44 individuals with developmental disabilities. The project was reviewed and approved by the city of Livermore’s Historical Preservation Committee as well as the city Planning Commission in October 2016. The Livermore City Council will now consider the project on March 13, 2017.
The community is proposed on a 2.2 acre parcel on First Street, near Mines Road and directly across from the Lowes and Safeway shopping centers. Sunflower Hill intends to keep the original home that’s currently there. It was built in 1927 by Robert Schenone, the grandson of city founder Robert Livermore.
Sunflower Hill is partnering with MidPen Housing Corporation as the affordable housing developer and Dahlin Architects of Pleasanton on the architectural vision. Landscape architects Gates and Associates and civil engineers BKF Engineers round out the design and planning team.
The new community will offer residents a variety of choices in independent living including junior suites, studios, and one-bedroom units at 30-50 percent of the area median income.
Also planned are an overlay of on-site activities similar to those found with senior living. Proposed amenities include a large dining hall and commercial kitchen, fitness, game and craft rooms, a therapeutic pool, Petanque (bocce) court, and outdoor areas that compliment the early California/Spanish architectural style of the existing home. MidPen Housing will provide property management services– with a full-time manager (24/7) living onsite.
