A 34-unit housing renovation for YWHomes

The YWCA is upgrading the neighborhood block by block and what was once an unsafe neighborhood is now a family-friendly environment for transitional housing.

By salvaging the existing brick and hardwood floors, upgrading to energy efficient HVAC units and windows, installing water efficient plumbing fixtures, planting drought tolerant landscaping and using local materials, CCR achieved a green design.
