Vintage Cooperative of Iowa City
The Vintage Cooperative of Iowa City is a 53 unit senior living cooperative. The project is three levels of wood framing over a precast underground parking garage. Each level is approx. 33,000 square feet so the total gross building area including the parking garage is about 134,000 square feet. Some of the buildings features include a Community Great Room, Lounge, Library, Café, Club Room, Fitness Center, and two guest rooms. Each member is allowed a parking stall in the heated underground parking garage. On the exterior of the building, 1st floor tenants will have walk off patios to a site that features a walking path along the woods and community gardens /planting beds. The site also features three underground storm retention chambers to control the site water run off.
Fun Fact: There are 95 pieces of precast wall panels that make up the parking garage level of the Vintage Cooperative. Each of these pieces was delivered on their own truck from the supplier, which traveled a total of approximately 36,000 miles to get to the jobsite.
