Unique temporary housing design to look and feel permanent

AHBL provided civil engineering, and landscape architecture, for Cosecha Court II Phase Two, and civil engineering and landscape architecture services for Phase Three of the Cosecha Court housing project. Owned and operated by the Yakima Housing Authority (YHA), Cosecha Court II is a seasonal family farmworker housing development. The housing project’s top priority was a desire that the new temporary housing units look and feel like permanent housing. 

The AHBL team worked closely with YHA staff to design meaningful outdoor spaces that serve the residents recreational needs and provide outdoor entertainment and gathering spaces for workers. Adjacent to Cosecha Court II, the new addition consists of four congregate units with 64 beds for farmworkers, a residential common building, and an office for tenant services. Together, the six units provide 96 beds of low-income housing for farmworkers from April through November and for homeless families during the winter months.

Civil engineering services included utility infrastructure; on-site stormwater collection, retention/detention, and treatment with on-site bio infiltration ponds; on-site gravity sanitary sewer system; on-site domestic water and fire protection systems; and parking for three additional buildings on the site.

Landscape architecture services included planting, site furnishings, and performance irrigation, technical specifications for bidder-designed irrigation system.
