Tierra Vista Communities
In March 2007, the U.S. Air Force selected Lendlease as its partner to develop, build, renovate, finance, and maintain the Military Family housing at Los Angeles AFB, Schriever AFB and Peterson AFB. Collectively called Tierra Vista, the communities were designed to improve the quality-of-life of Military Families. This is accomplished through neighborhoods that feature state-of-the-art design and technology with sustainability integrated into multiple aspects.
Tierra Vista is the first ever, on-base housing community for Military Families on Schriever AFB. A total of 242 brand new, energy efficient three- and four-bedroom homes were developed for Service Members of all ranks, along with a new state-of-the-art community center with an indoor, Olympic-size swimming pool and a host of other neighborhood amenities.
Lendlease took an innovative approach to designing TVC at Peterson AFB, developing 597 new homes and performing extensive renovations to 53 units. With a commitment to using 100 percent CFL energy efficient lighting, the use of tankless water heaters and foam insulation to reduce energy loss, and novel landscape design that will eventually result in 50 percent water conservation throughout the community, Tierra Vista at Peterson AFB is a testament to Lendlease's commitment to sustainability.
At Los Angeles AFB, Lendlease and Tierra Vista performed an extensive renovation of homes throughout the three Tierra Vista neighborhoods, including a revitalization of historic Ft. MacArthur. With breathtaking coastal views, neighborhood improvements at Ft. MacArthur include four historic renovations, along with the conversion of 66 two-bedroom flats into 33 four-bedroom townhomes.
