MSA Consulting, Inc. provided Civil Engineering services for the 22-acre, affordable housing community located directly south of Highway 111 just east of Dune Palms Road in the City of La Quinta. Comprised of residential units and a commercial component, the Coral Mountain community serves both the housing needs of low income residents, as well as providing commercial opportunities to facilitate the needs of La Quinta shoppers.
Preliminary services for the entire project included utility research and coordination, pre-design survey, utility research, hydrology and grading along with a drainage review of the residential site plan and a preliminary WQMP based on the NPDES-MS4-Whitewater Region Storm Water Management Plan. Final design engineering and environmental services were provided for the Multi-Family Residential portion to include preparation and processing of all channel permitting, final Water Quality Management Plan, Storm Water Prevention Pollution Plan, and Fugitive Dust Control Plan. MSA also provided onsite and offsite Construction Staking, SWPPP Monitoring services, and utility coordination for the storm drain line through the adjacent Desert Sands Unified School District property.
In addition to 200 residential units of varying sizes in eleven buildings, the complex includes a community clubhouse and a swimming pool. The project includes a shaded tot lot and shaded play areas with a multi-level play structure and soft surface pad, water fountain spray pad, basketball court, multiple BBQ areas, swimming pools, pedestrian pathways and commons areas. The new residents are able to enjoy high quality, independent, affordable housing in the City of La Quinta.
