Historical renovation of a former middle school redesigned to offer affordable senior housing

The project consisted of a historically sensitive renovation of the 230,000-square-foot, former Philip Livingston Magnet Academy. This vacant and underutilized landmark structure was transformed into a mixed-income senior living community with 103 rental units, including studio, one and two-bedroom apartments. The historic fabric of the original building has been maintained through the renovation process. Classrooms were converted into apartment homes, and large open areas that once housed the administrative offices, auditorium and two-story school library were converted into amenity areas for the residents. Additionally, the proposed development provides quality affordable housing to residents, creating a true mix of incomes within the community.
