The AltaView Healthy Living Community is an autonomous, multi-layered, mixed-use program that actively promotes health and wellness through housing, nature, architecture, and urban design. Electric transport, clean air, wellness & healthcare amenities, farm to table market, over a million sf of healthy living, and generous private outdoor space.
The plan transforms the former site of Seaview Hospital—a baroque, radially planned tuberculosis treatment complex—and then radiates out in a series of concentric rings. The innermost ring is a car-free mixed-use core with wellness facilities. Next is a ring of commercial and recreational facilities. The outermost ring includes 755,000 sf of newly built residential garden apartments overlooking the 180-acre greenbelt.
The result is a completely connected community that fosters new forms of wellness, living, working, urban agriculture, and leisure.
