Take a look inside the new luxury apartments in Healdsburg’s Factory District

A former lumber yard in Healdsburg is getting a makeover as the Mill District, a ‘mixed-use’ development that will combine affordable housing, luxury apartments, pedestrian promenades and a boutique hotel just steps from historic Healdsburg Plaza.

The affordable housing development, named The Exchange, will include 41 low-income units available for Healdsburg residents and workers. The affordable units were designed by PYATOK Architects in Oakland.

The 39 luxury units, designed by Seattle-based Olson Kundig and located in the district’s Canopy neighborhood, will cost between $1 million (for the smallest studio) and $8.5 million (for a penthouse apartment) .

Sleek and modern Canopy units are available in three configurations: “apartments” (ranging from studios to three-bedroom apartments), two-level “garden houses” and penthouses with expansive patios and panoramic views (there are has five penthouses in total).

The apartments have been designed in such a way that they feel both tranquil and airy. Floor-to-ceiling sliding glass walls provide a seamless transition between indoors and outdoors. The design is clean and the color palette is sober. Dark marbles, tactile stone, and stained wood cabinetry add warmth to an otherwise cool and sleek look.

The goal when designing the Canopy units was to create “intimate and social spaces,” said lead architect Kirsten Ring Murray. This was achieved through the design of spacious patios and balconies, as well as open-concept chef’s kitchens, which were designed in consultation with Chef Kyle Connaughton of the Michelin-starred Single Thread restaurant in Healdsburg.

The kitchens have counters and ample space to prepare meals. Patios with space for herb and vegetable gardens and wine fridges with see-through doors make cooking and entertaining easier and also add the kind of style accents that suit homes in the center of town. Wine Region.

Fire pits, Jacuzzis, and kinetic media walls are other amenities available in deluxe units. Underground parking with connections for electric vehicles and elevators is also provided.

In addition to housing estates, the Mill District will feature boardwalks, courtyards and a 1-acre park with ancient redwoods. “Buildings themselves serve to shape gardens and open spaces,” Ring Murray said. And the interiors of the apartments are designed to “maximize the views” from the outside, she added.
