MILL TOWN HERITAGE
Olson Kundig sought inspiration from the site’s history as a former lumberyard that milled quality products for decades. Mill District incorporates timber from the former industrial site into robust architectural elements at Canopy, as well as artifacts from the location’s previous owner, Nu Forest Products.
NESTLED AMONGST TOWERING REDWOODS
Canopy is set amidst fifteen old growth redwoods, a grove of gentle giants that provide shade for Mill District and its inhabitants. The redwoods frame The Preserve, a one-acre park where Canopy owners can relax, socialize and rejuvenate.
Situated across 10 acres, the pocket gardens showcase the best of California flora. Citrus orchards and community culinary gardens adjoin rose and butterfly gardens, fern and succulent gardens, as well as lavender and rain gardens – all for Canopy residents to use and enjoy.
The Poolhouse is a private social, health and wellness facility, just steps from Canopy. Centered around an elevated, private lap pool and expansive pool deck, The Poolhouse is for the exclusive use of Mill District residents—a place where they can refresh, relax, socialize and entertain. The Poolhouse is complete with fitness and movement studios, a living room, and a demonstration kitchen that can be transformed for business meetings. Plan your day with the Experience Concierge over a morning espresso. Swim laps or work out with your personal trainer. Later, unwind on the pool deck with your favorite beverage, then spend the evening taking cooking classes, or wining and dining with a local winemaker and private guest chef. The well-appointed living room and kitchen opens seamlessly to the pool deck, providing homeowners with a gathering place for receptions, reunions, and more. The Poolhouse also includes bike storage. The Poolhouse is designed by SB Architects, an international architecture practice based in San Francisco, with 60 years of experience in providing clients with the highest level of creativity and design excellence for hospitality, residential and mixed-use developments.
A well-appointed living room, bar and service kitchen provides homeowners a gathering place for receptions, reunions and other special events. The Poolhouse also includes bike storage and staging, as well as a boardroom and business center.
At Mill District, sustainability is central to everything we do. That commitment goes beyond embracing redevelopment of a former industrial site, and building up into the redwood canopy, instead of sprawling out into Healdsburg. Mill District utilizes solar panels on every building, electric vehicle charging station infrastructure in the garage, and an expansive recycling program. All of the power will be sourced from renewable energy sources. In-home designs incorporate low-flow fixtures, reducing water usage by up to 60%. VITA Planning & Landscape Architecture, a renowned firm with experience on five continents, will be designing the garden landscape for Mill District. Drought-tolerant plants have been incorporated into the landscaping, and state-of-the-art irrigation systems collect rainwater and runoff. The gardens are maintained using weather synch technology, adjusting to the season, temperature, rain, and soil moisture. Mill District is cycling and pedestrian friendly, and our vision for sustainability extends well into the future—when Sonoma-Marin Area Rail Transit comes to Healdsburg, it will stop across the street, obviating the need for cars. The better we take care of our environment, the more it will take care of us.
