Fairfield Apartments (formerly Liberty Park I and III) consisted of two phases. Phase I included 124 mixed-income residential units spread across 16 buildings of various configurations within a 5.4-acre neighborhood. These structures are constructed with wood frames on slab-on-grade foundations, featuring a mix of masonry veneer, vinyl siding, and wood trim. Building 600 also houses a community space.

Phase II spanned about 3.62 acres and is divided into 3 blocks. This phase introduced 71 dwelling units in 2-3 story wood frame buildings with paved parking at grade. The units are distributed across 13 residential buildings, each accommodating between 3 to 12 units. These buildings feature styles including row townhouses and garden or flat style units with corridors. The site offers amenities like surface parking, mailboxes, bike racks, tot lots, screened trash areas, and decorative pole site lighting. Natural landscaping complements the area. The buildings exhibit various architectural styles, incorporating materials like masonry, siding, siding panels, and sloped shingle roofs. Each building is equipped with porches, decks, and patios for added functionality and charm.
