(March 10, 2014) A special ribbon-cutting event was held over the weekend for the Springside School Apartments – a senior affordable housing rental community in Burlington Township, NJ. Principal-In-Charge Mary M. Johannesen, AIA, LEED AP, project manager Chris Panella, and project architect Anthony Noga were on-hand for the occasion from K&A.
This new community is the result of the adaptive-reuse and historic preservation of the Springside Elementary School building and a newly constructed addition. The project provides seventy-five, one-bedroom rental apartments for seniors. The building’s exterior was fully restored to bring back the original architectural character, and the new addition complements the character and scale of the original school. Interior spaces were updated for contemporary senior living and are fully accessible with modern elevators and energy saving features. Congratulations to Moorestown Ecumenical Neighborhood Development, Conifer Realty, and the entire project team on this exemplary project!
