Garvey Court is a four-story residential complex with 60 affordable senior apartments above a ground level 3500 SF senior community center, 1500 SF commercial space, and 8 additional senior apartments. This project has received the LEED Platinum award. The design reinforces the commercial street edge with a lively play of color and massing and the "L" configuration creates a protected interior landscaped courtyard with opportunities for quiet recreation and gardening. The project will serve to re-vitalize a blighted commercial street while respectfully fitting in with an existing residential neighborhood to the rear.
