Evergreen Village Wins National ABC Award
Evergreen Village Apartments
Built in 1972, the 180-unit affordable housing community is organized into nine clusters or “villages.” Each village includes 20 garden-style units built around a semi-private courtyard. Parking and access drives are arranged around the perimeter of the nicely landscaped 18-acre site, creating an interior pedestrian and child friendly environment. The scope of work includes new windows, siding, roofing, and air sealing. Interior work includes new kitchens and bathrooms with water conserving plumbing fixtures, new flooring, painting, and energy efficient lighting. Site improvements include family focused amenities such as a community multi-purpose room, children’s play area, basketball court, barbeque areas, and a pea patch.
Originally designed by Robert Price, an architect from Tacoma with 69 national and regional design awards, and Rich Haig, the founder of the Landscape Architect Program at the University of Washington and recipient of the ASLA Design Medal in 2003 and 2007, the renovation is funded through the low-income housing tax credit (LIHTC) program and designed to conform to the Evergreen Sustainable Development Standard (ESDS version 3.0).
