HDC MidAtlantic recently closed a multi-property redevelopment project to rehabilitate and preserve 208 affordable homes. This redevelopment project will ensure over 200 households will continue to have a safe, decent affordable place to call home.
The redevelopment project is comprised of four affordable housing communities. The communities are Springwood Glen Apartments, Middletown, 58 apartments; The Apartments at Mulberry Corners, Lancaster, 25 apartments; Rockford Chase Apartments, Mountville, 60 apartments; and Wyndamere Apartments, York, 65 apartments.
While the specific scope of work varies among properties, rehab efforts will focus heavily on interior upgrades and energy efficiency enhancements. Residents will see new doors, windows, and hardware; new cabinetry and appliances such as electric ranges and refrigerators; new flooring and paint; and upgraded, energy efficient HVAC, electrical, and plumbing systems inside their homes and in community spaces.
Apartments designated for individuals with disabilities will be updated to current ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) standards and include the installation of new bathroom grab bars and roll-in showers with floor drains, accessible countertops and shelving, as well as new flooring. Residents will also see upgraded safety features like new and improved lighting, motion sensors, property cameras, as well as installation of new smoke and carbon monoxide detectors.
On the exteriors, properties will get new roofing, gutters, and downspouts installed, repair or replacement of decking materials and railings, and new paint to exterior metal railings. Sidewalks, as well as dumpster pads and surrounds, will be repaired or replaced. Select parking lots will see new ADA van accessible stripping. New lighting and property signage will be installed, and tot lots will see new vinyl surrounds and mulching.
