Iron Horse Lofts was designed and built in tandem with Coggins Square.

A hybrid in the making, the Iron Horse Lofts are townhouse lofts designed on a typical 3-story townhouse platform, each loft side-by-side within eight separate buildings, with each building containing a range of three to eleven lofts. Many distinctive features, found more commonly in lofts, enhance the uniqueness and flexibility of the loft homes: high ceilings, open pitch and saw tooth roofs, open plan interiors, expansive windows, and architectural detailing. The space is both energetic and inviting, allowing owners much more freedom to shape the space to their individual needs.

Site plan.

Located adjacent to the Pleasant Hill Bart Station, Iron Horse Lofts is comprised of 54 townhouses, mostly 1 and 2 bedroom configurations but with some 3 bedroom types. These townhouses front Coggins Drive, Wayside Lane or the main courtyard. Vehicle access is provided by a private road circulating within the property.
