General contractor R.D. Olson Construction says construction is underway on Stony Oaks Apartments, a four-story medium high-density community that will provide 142 units of affordable housing to the city of Santa Rosa.

The design-build contractor says it is streamlining project delivery by managing a single contract with the owner, MetaHousing. The project is expected to be completed in April 2023.

Other participants in the design-build process include architect Dahlin Group, B.K.F. Engineers, REYFF Electrical, HVAC Talent Air and Ampam Parks Mechanical.

The 149,319 sq. ft. structure will include 56 one-bedroom, 48 two-bedroom and 38 three-bedroom apartments reserved for families and individuals earning between 30% to 60% of the area medium income. There will be a large multi-purpose community room, a fitness center, a media center, laundry and on-site management offices. Surface parking will include 185 stalls with 47 secured bicycle stalls.

“Santa Rosa hasn’t been able to fully rebuild since the city lost nearly 3,000 homes in the Tubbs Fire of 2017, so an affordable multifamily community that can house more than 400 residents will be a welcome addition to the city,” R.D. Olson Bill Wilhelm said in a Jan. 5 statement. “Since opening our Northern California office in 2016, we have established relationships with local subcontractors and are navigating current challenges by locking in prices and ordering materials early.”
