Project: Delin Apartments
Location: Tacoma, Washington
Client: Hill & Son Construction, Inc.
Completed: 2002

This small community is located on a 1.33 acre site is near downtown Tacoma and in an existing neighborhood. The small size of the lot and other building requirements limited the site to two buildings, which held 40 units total. The unit mix is one and two bedroom units, with accessible units on the ground floor.

The smaller of the two buildings is located on the lower, flatter portion of the site, while the larger building stair-steps up the slope to the rear of the site, allowing for a greater visual variation of the structure, and to preserve views into downtown Tacoma. Parking is located between the two buildings.

A large trash compactor and recycling collection bins were installed to encourage the tenants to maintain a clean appearance of the complex. A security fencing and gate system were installed to provide the residents with a reasonable level of security.
