RRM recently attended the groundbreaking ceremony for The Vistas at Pismo Village. This lively mixed-use project sits in the heart of the town of Pismo Beach and captures the “village theme” for the residential and commercial components of the development. Pismo’s eclectic styles are a trademark of this Central Coast community and this project draws from its surrounding coastal beach neighborhood. The Vistas’ architectural styles of California craftsman, seaside modern and early California all contribute to an overall project theme of past, present and future to bring to life the concept of various structures being developed over time. The Vistas includes 32 townhome residential units; half of these are detached on individual lots, the other half attached on individual lots. The three-story townhomes average +/- 1,500 sf of living space. Residence parking is both attached and detached. In addition the commercial component along busy Wadsworth Avenue provides 5,800 sf of retail space and parking with a 1,000 sf residential manager’s apartment above.
