Construction is rising for a new affordable housing complex at 1313 Galindo Street in Concord, Contra Costa County. The development, named the Rick Judd Commons, will rise five floors close to the Concord BART Station. Berkeley-based RCD Housing is the developer.

Lowney Architecture is responsible for the design and landscape architecture. The small podium-style building has four U-shaped floors of housing above the garage, nestled around a central amenity courtyard.

The 69-foot tall structure will yield around 66,440 square feet, including 11,550 square feet for the ground-level garage. Unit sizes will vary with 39 one-bedrooms, 19 two-bedrooms, and four three-bedrooms. Parking is included for 75 cars using three-high stackers. Bicycle parking will be included in a small room next to the lobby. Most of the 62 units will primarily serve residents earning between 30-60% of the Area’s Median Income. One residence will be reserved for the property manager.

The 0.53-acre parcel is located along the wide Galindo Street thoroughfare between Laguna Street and Oakmead Drive. The Concord BART Station and Ellis Lake Park are both less than ten minutes away on foot.

Construction is expected to cost around $41.5 million, with completion anticipated next year.
