New construction of a 86-unit affordable senior living development for Catholic Charities.

Info



  • New construction of a 86-unit affordable senior living development for Catholic Charities.
  • The project has received a Bronze level in the National Building Standard.
  • Following the simultaneous funding of two funding applications, the challenge presented was to combine the two irregular-shaped buildings into one structure while maintaining the proposed 4-story height, and combining the parking into one lot, while still providing outdoor space for residents.
  • Existing trees on the west perimeter were preserved to provide natural screening to the surrounding residential neighborhood.
