Bill Sorro Community – 200 Sixth Street
Named after the late social and economic justice activity, the Bill Sorro Community integrates developmentally disabled adults living within a larger multi-family community. The 9-story reinforced concrete building contains retail on the ground floor and 65 affordable housing apartments on the upper floors (mix of studio, single, two, and bedroom apartments). Fourteen units are reserved for low-income adults with developmental disabilities. The development also provides a community space and a rooftop terrace. Langan prepared a geotechnical investigation for the project. During construction, our team observed installation and testing of soil cement columns to confirm soil improvement for foundation support was performed in accordance with our recommendations. Our environmental team performed a Phase I ESA, soil sampling and prepared a contingency plan that was implemented during construction.
