  • 13-story tower renovation


In 2009, following the efforts of the Wheat Street Gardens Redevelopment and the Wheat Street Campus Master Plan, WSCF Development, LLC began envisioning a comprehensive renovation to their 13-story residential tower. The tower, built in 1971, provides some 208 one-bedroom units to elderly persons of low to moderate incomes. To provide design vision to the renovation process, WSCF hired a team led by TSW.

Two primary design goals were established early in the process: 1) transform the tower into a high-quality living experience, 2) transform the plaza at the northwest corner of the site into one fully accessible to the residents.

The official ground-breaking to renovate the towers took place on August 17, 2017, and the renovation of the towers are expected to be finished in 2018.
