Architecture firm TAT debuts A.C. affordable housing redevelopment for WinnDevelopment

Architecture firm TAT recently announced it is designing three properties across Atlantic City for WinnDevelopment‘s latest renovation project — Sencit Liberty Apartments.

This significant transformation will modernize and preserve 153 units of existing affordable housing while improving the development’s financial performance, energy efficiency and livability.

The scattered-site community comprises three properties across the city: the historic Liberty Apartments, originally built in 1924, serving as a hotel until its conversion into 76 units; Schoolhouse Apartments, formerly the Illinois Avenue School, built in 1906 and later adapted into 66 units; and Disston Apartments, initially operating as a YMCA, subsequently converted into 20 units.

Upgrades, with various levels of renovation throughout the sites, include new HVAC systems, canopy and façade repair, new window security screens, the installation of high-efficiency gas-fired condensing boilers and the repointing, cleaning and painting of exterior masonry.

Designed to meet Enterprise Green Communities standards, each property is equipped with Energy Star appliances, new plumbing and gas-fired water heaters with 95% efficiency, low-flow toilets and LED lighting.

Intended to help address the pressing nationwide need for affordable rental housing, these historic and architecturally significant buildings have been successfully restored as sustainable and cost-efficient assets to the city, according to a news release.
