The partnership provided for the renovation of the community and ultimate ownership by the residents and CASHC. The property is composed of three different property types: a ten-story high-rise containing 189 units, 23 garden-style apartment buildings with 210 units, and seven townhomes. Amenities include playgrounds, a community room, retail space, a day care center on the ground floor of the high-rise, and laundry rooms.
