Stage Coach Apartments
The Stage Coach Apartments is a 60-unit, single- and two-story, multifamily rental project committed to providing affordable housing and stabilization services for individuals with children. The existing property, a neighborhood landmark along the “gateway to Santa Fe,” consists of three buildings (16 units), on 1.25 acres and an adjacent 3.15-acre vacant parcel. The property is located in the Cerrillos Road Corridor Plan Area, a revitalization area of the Southwest Santa Fe Community Area Master Plan.
The project offers compact development with ample open space, including community gardens and orchards, sport courts, walking paths with fitness zones for adults and teens, and native rain gardens that offer opportunities for explorative learning and play. The spacious community building has a sunny lobby with seating, kitchen, computer lab, offices, and a large classroom for daycare and after school programs. The site is pedestrian friendly with paths connecting directly to the Arroyo de Los Chamisos nature trail, public transportation, and commercial activities along Cerrillos Road, an ideal workforce housing neighborhood with a concentration of retail employment nearby. Stage Coach Apartments intends to achieve LEED for Home Platinum Certified, the highest level of sustainability.
On-site services include a resident social service coordinator and programs provided through nonprofit cohorts — at no cost to residents or the development cash flows — including: financial fitness, computer and CPR training, health screening, and preschool daycare. Additional modules available on demand include: homebuyer training, energy literacy and healthy home education, financial literacy and job training/placement for youth, ESL, after school recreation, cooperative child care/parenting skills and healthy cooking and gardening programs.
