Burr Oaks Senior Apartments was developed in partnership with the local housing authority and municipality to revitalize a blighted area of Madison’s south side. Horizon assisted in removing substandard apartments and replacing with 50 units of high quality, affordable housing for seniors. Horizon managed a complicated entitlement process and coordinated all aspects of project construction. The comprehensive development and construction services allowed the team to fast track the construction schedule (7.5 months) and guarantee the construction amount. The project included numerous upgrades at no cost to the client as well as a green roof amenity for resident enjoyment. The project was leased in four short months and was viewed as a tremendous success in the neighborhood. Project financing included section 8 vouchers, tax credits, HOME funds, and a bank loan.
