A new senior housing community for the Louisiana Housing Finance Authority, was developed for individuals 55 years and older. The traditional neighborhood concept was utilized to offer services and supportive housing which enables residents to live well and age in place. The total development is 11.4 acres in size with a total of 224 living units. The main street allows for a pedestrian friendly environment and activates the street edge through the service components located in the Mixed-Use complex. The design offers diversity by providing multiple building types that range from single family homes to small and large apartment buildings. All of which utilize different methods of solar shading such as deep overhangs, building orientation, and porches and balconies screened with wood slats.
