A 365-unit multifamily project planned for West Oaks Boulevard in Rocklin would be one of the largest of its kind in that city. What would be one of the biggest multifamily complexes in Rocklin is going through city planning about a year after its site w

Young Kim, a partner and design principal at architecture firm HRGA, is listed as the project applicant. He said he would need to confer with the property owner before discussing the project. Black Iris Properties LLC, with an address in Granite Bay, owns the project site and is listed in plans as the developer. Representatives

According to the application, West Oaks Apartments would include 252 apartments that range from studios to two bedrooms, along with 113 townhomes of two or three bedrooms. The apartment breakdown would be six studios, 143 one-bedroom units and 103 two-bedroom units. Fifty-nine of the townhomes would be two-bedroom, while the rest would have three. Apartments would be scattered across 15 three-story walk-up buildings and two four-story buildings. Exact square footages for the apartments and townhomes were not included in the application.
Within the project, .72 of an acre would be preserved as open space, containing Pleasant Grove Creek and a setback.
e-foot clubhouse with a pool outside would be part of the project. Plans show the clubhouse would have a fitness center, great room, party room, package center and outdoor patio, in addition to an outdoor patio facing the pool and spa. Plans indicate the project would be built in four phases. The property itself was zoned for commercial development, and at one time planned for an office complex that didn't move forward, until the city approved rezoning for multifamily last year.
