RDL Architects Receives 2016 Award of Excellence in Affordable Senior Housing
SHAKER HEIGHTS, OHIO (June 10, 2016) – RDL Architects is pleased to receive the 2016 Award of Excellence for the Green Hills Apartments project in the Affordable Senior Housing Redevelopment category. The award was presented by the Ohio Capital Corporation for Housing (OCCH) at its annual partner luncheon program, held on May 26th in Columbus, Ohio.
Partnering with Green Hills Community, Episcopal Retirement Services Affordable Living and the Model Group, the Green Hill Apartments were completed in November of 2015. The project consisted of renovating 76 apartment units, originally build in the 1970s to provide senior residents with more space and greater accessibility features. The renovated homes include larger kitchens with new appliances, stackable washers and dryers, updated bathrooms with walk-in showers and roll-under sinks, central air conditioning, carpet, ceiling fans, new windows and lighting, and emergency call systems and larger patios and sidewalks.
Funding was raised through Low-Income Housing Tax Credits issued by the Ohio Housing Finance Agency and purchased by the Ohio Capital Corporation for Housing.
