Under a new developer and design team (C+GA), a project that had been partially built to the third floor, then abandoned during the recession of 2008, transformed into a seven story, 11-unit supportive housing building for clients with mental disabilities, living independently with on-site supportive services.
Part of the design challenge was in utilizing the existing structure of the partially built building on a very tight lot. This challenge was met by designing creatively narrow units that still exceeded HPD guidelines for a supportive housing apartment. The front façade is clad with a phenolic resin panel rain screen. Along with the on-site supportive services, amenities include an outdoor rear yard and indoor community space.
