This affordable 62-unit senior apartments project designed exclusively for adults 55 and over is located within the Garfield Ridge Community area. Manhard provided civil engineering, planning, land surveying, landscape architecture, stormwater management, entitlement assistance and construction administration services.
The project includes sustainable design with storm water best management practices (BMP’s) with native landscaping throughout, including a parking lot bio-swale and stormwater infiltration basin. The project required Chicago Planned Development (PD) approval and Manhard assisted through representation at Chicago Plan Commission and Zoning Committee Meetings, PD exhibits, site and landscape plan renderings, Chicago Transit Authority (CTA) exhibits, project narratives for PD hearing and CDOT PD coordination. Manhard also lead the efforts for Chicago Fire Prevention Bureau, CDOT PD approval, CDOT Perimeter Paving Agreement (PPA) and Mayor’s Office for People with Disabilities (MOPD).
