ORB Architects was part of a strategic alliance to provide architectural services for rehabilitating an 8-story, 198-unit senior housing building, in accordance with the capital needs assessment. This included investigative procedures for repairs, general improvements, finish modernization, and overall code or safety upgrades. This project was managed and overseen by HUD.

The 198 dwelling units received all new kitchens including cabinets, counters, fixtures, and flooring. Units also received new bath resilient flooring, the replacement of old, oversized
accordion closet doors with new easy to maneuver and more senior-friendly wood doors.
Baseboard heaters and additional emergency call buttons were also added to each unit.

The common area improvements involved the reconfiguration of the commercial kitchen
and office, with new equipment as well as well as a modified layout, fire systems, elevator upgrades, and new lighting controls. Finish improvements included new main lobby,
corridor, and elevator carpet, as well as the addition of a new more welcoming vestibule, now energy-efficient and ADA compliant.
