The large site is gated off from the neighborhood only allowing neighbors access to the retail portion that fronts the Alameda. Otherwise you'll ahave to walk all the way down to Stockton to navigate around this gated off 2 acre site.
So how did such a large apartment building get built in the middle of a historic neighborhood? What was here before?
If you look closely at the 2 photos you'll notice one of the springs showcased in it's glory and today shown as a small art piece without any context hidden behind the locked residential gates to the 2 acre apartment complex.
I hope that as the neighborhood is ringed with ever more high density housing that the Rose Garden residents will demand city planners require more public walking access through these behemoths.
We need to show up at community meetings and push developers for more art and historical nods to add to the neighborhood's rich history and character, rather than diminishing it with bland apathetic architecture.
