Funded under the HUD Section 202 program this project provides 50—one-bedroom living units for the elderly population in Mishawaka Indiana, located near South Bend. The program included generous common spaces for resident socialization including a Community Room with full Kitchen, Library, Computer Room, Fitness Facility, Activities Room and a large outdoor Patio area with adjacent Gazebo. Although not certified the project incorporates many Green Design initiatives including added insulation, high efficiency HVAC systems, Energy Star rated appliances and fixtures, low flow plumbing fixtures and low VOC coatings, sealants and materials. Taking into the northern Indiana climate, a snow melt system was also included for the roof.
A second phase is planned for future development which may provide up to 45 additional units to the east.
