Hall Equities Group wanted a modern, luxury apartment building near downtown Walnut Creek, where building heights are limited unless the public votes to allow the development to exceed the established limit.  In addition, the project could not have below grade parking as the site is in a FEMA flood plain.  The Arroyo developer challenged the project team to design a six-story apartment complex with two parking levels that would not exceed the city height limits.  SGH was the structural engineer for the approximately 174,000 sq ft complex with 100 apartment units and 134 parking stalls.
