Alta Laguna – 55 Laguna

2 buildings: 46,000 sf & 92,000 sf of elevated 4-5 story wood frame apartment buildings 307 total units 1 level subterranean parking each building

Pacific Structures is constructing the concrete podium for the two wood frame apartment buildings totaling 307 units. The main challenge of the project is the site conditions. The lot sits on a steep hill and has two varying soil conditions: one side has bedrock and the other has poor soil. The team is currently discussing and evaluating soil GEO piers, piles, and lean fill to determine which will be the best system to accommodate for the poor soil conditions. Site work to allow road access and laydown areas to the buildings will be constructed out of normal sequence to help alleviate site constraints. In addition, Pacific Structures will also be coordinating with the city and MUNI officials to minimalize disruptions to traffic and bus routes surrounding the site.
