“Cultivating opportunities for vibrant neighborhoods and communities.”

Crestview Apartments is a project that encompasses appreciation and transformation. It reinstated a community fixture that had lost viability with contemporary elderly apartment seekers.

The existing dormitory style units were combined into 55 larger units, each with a kitchen. The cafeteria and congregate areas were converted into comfortable community spaces for the residents. Also included is an exercise area, library, sitting area with fireplace, and several lounge areas. The final interiors were designed to complement the original 1960’s lines of the architecture as well as provide a comfortable and colorful living space suitable for the anticipated demographic.
