Press Release ( - SANTA ROSA, Calif. - Jun 08, 2020 - ​​​​​​​Development Team Overcomes Financing and Construction Uncertainty Due to COVID 19

Phoenix Development Company, along with its developer partner, Irvine-based Integrity Housing, are pleased to announce that they have closed financing and commenced construction on Dutton Flats Apartments, located at 214 West 3rd Street in Santa Rosa, CA. This once vacant lot will become home to a 41-unit affordable, multifamily complex designed to serve low-income families with children. Dutton Flats will provide high-quality affordable housing in an urban, infill location, benefiting future residents, the community, and the company’s investors.

Dutton Flats Apartments

The development team for Dutton Flats Apartments worked closely with the City of Santa Rosa and the Housing Authority of the City of Santa Rosa to develop a sustainable, livable community that will blend harmoniously with the surrounding neighborhood while providing a spark of architectural flair. The affordable community will consist of 41 units (40 units for tenants and 1 manager’s unit). Designed for families, all units will have ample living space incorporating a great room with an open kitchen, dining and living area. Community amenities will include a community room, laundry room, technology center, bike kitchen, fitness center, children’s activity room and a centrally located picnic/BBQ area. The walkable property is located in the downtown Santa Rosa area and in close proximity to schools and employment. The building incorporates a bus shelter for ease of transportation to off-site services.

The project incorporates sustainable construction best practices, with an emphasis on energy and water conservation. The property will incorporate solar hot water heating, and rainwater harvesting to water the drought-tolerant landscaping. The units will feature Energy Star appliances, LED lighting, high-efficiency heating, and energy-conserving windows and insulation. Wherever practical, the project will incorporate recycled and repurposed materials.


Dutton Flats is owned by Dutton Flats, LP, consisting of Phoenix Development Company (Administrative General Partner), Integrity Housing (Managing General Partner), and Berkadia (Investor Limited Partner). Exchange Bank is the Construction Lender for $13,000,000, and a $3,100,000 loan from The Housing Authority of the City of Santa Rosa. The property is being built by Precision General Commercial Contractors, designed by KTGY Architecture and Planning and will be managed by FPI Management, Inc.

Loren Brueggemann, President of Phoenix Development Company, states, “We at Phoenix Development Company are thankful and humbled by the opportunity we have been granted to develop and own this 100% affordable family project. The help we received from the City of Santa Rosa, the Housing Authority of the City of Santa Rosa and all of their respective staff to bring this project to fruition is truly a testament to the City’s dedication to create housing. We are thankful to our many development partners, Integrity Housing, KTGY, Civil Design, Exchange Bank, Berkadia, Hunt/ORIX and Precision General Commercial Contractors for their efforts to bring this Project forward in these extremely unusual times.”

Phil Wood, President of Integrity Housing, states, “Dutton Flats is one of our most rewarding projects.  Our intention was to help replace housing lost in the fires that devastated Santa Rosa in recent years. Not only will the project itself be an asset to the community it will help alleviate the shortage of affordable housing for families in the area. Our investor and financing partners worked diligently to ensure the project was financially viable and we cannot thank them enough for their commitment to ensure we were able to close amidst the uncertainty of the COVID 19 pandemic. I’m thrilled that this project is underway.”
