LAKE METROPOLITAN HOUSING AUTHORITY - PARKVIEW PLACE RENOVATION
TC Architects provided architectural and interior design services for the renovation of this two-building, forty-four-unit apartment complex. An evaluation of the buildings included an investigation of the existing site, architectural, structural, mechanical, electrical and plumbing components. The buildings were reviewed for compliance with ADA and Fair Housing guidelines. In addition, our team reviewed for lead-based paint, asbestos and radon gases.
A detailed estimate of probable costs was prepared to determine the feasibility of purchasing and renovating the complex. This was part of a HUD grant to develop affordable housing in Lake County.
The renovation included a new entrance feature, pitched roof, and infill panels. These new elements transformed the appearance and have low maintenance materials. Each unit was renovated and a new community space was created with access to a patio along the Chagrin River. The site was also enhanced to include ADA accessible parking and a trellised picnic area adjacent to the new river walk.
