Goodwin House Bailey's Crossroads Independent Living Tower & Garage
This project consisted of a 15-story, 106-unit apartment high-rise tower and underground parking garage with 177 spaces for both staff and residents. To take advantage of a very favorable bond market, the new Independent living Tower was bid substantially earlier than scheduled and finished two months ahead of schedule. With parking at a premium, the Garage under the New Independent Living Tower was turned over to the Owner for immediate use while the apartment tower was still under construction. This allowed residents to park there and for the Owner to terminate parking leases with adjacent property owners. Every square foot of new construction was once home to surface parking spaces. With the new building structures’ footprints consuming more real estate of surface parking than providing new spaces in the buildings’ underground garages, APM pursued finding ways to regain a number of lost parking spots. An already crowded campus gave way to thinking ‘outside the box’ with developing the air rights of the storm retention pond and building an additional stand-alone garage above.
"You needed to call on those strengths continually to bring ... $135 million project successfully to completion, on budget and ahead of schedule, on a tight site occupied with over 300 older adults and hundreds of staff, with challenging partners, and in the midst of the Anxiety created by the economic recession."– Ms. Kathy Anderson, President and CEO, Goodwin House Incorporated
