Eden Housing has put up story poles for its proposed senior affordable housing project in Orinda, which would put a 67-unit building on the old library site at 2 Irwin Way. The Planning Commission will consider Eden’s application Tuesday.
I drove by the site today to get a closer look. Much of the building, it appears, would be screened when looking up the hill from Orinda Way as well as downhill from Orinda Senior Village. The shot below is taken from Irwin Way across from Holden High School, right by the driveway to the old library.
I did swing around to Camino Pablo on my way back to the freeway and it looks like the project would be pretty visible as you’re driving along that street. But I don’t know what kind of additional screening, if any, Eden plans to put up.
The Planning Commission meets at 7 p.m. in the Orinda Library auditorium, 26 Orinda Way.
