The 260-acre 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 2 million sf of healthy living, healthcare and community facilities, located within generous green spaces.

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.
