Escondido Village Lowrise Apartments

Information on this page:EV Lowrises


    The core of Escondido Village includes 638 one- to three-bedroom flats and townhouses in one- and two-story buildings called “low-rises.” Purposely designed to avoid an institutional feel, the buildings are arranged in clusters of two or three amidst grassy fields, picnic areas, and communal play areas. Thanks to a large private donation, new lawns, fences, and paths were installed throughout EV during 2008 and 2009.­ The apartment buildings are in the process of being renovated (several each year) to install new wall heaters, energy efficient double-paned windows and sliding glass doors, new flooring and paint.
