Prospect Plaza

Prospect Plaza is a mixed-use affordable housing redevelopment project spread over five buildings and three blocks in Brooklyn’s Ocean Hill–Brownsville neighborhood. The $200 million project is replacing a former New York City Housing Authority (NYCHA) complex with a mix of nearly 400 public housing and affordable rental apartments, retail space, and community and recreational facilities designed to support resident health in a rapidly developing area with significant public health challenges.

Brightview of Catonsville Assisted Living

A 90-bed, middle-income assisted living facility located in a western suburb of Baltimore. The Assisted Living Federation of America (ALFA) defines such a residence as a combination of housing, personalized supportive services, and health care designed to meet the needs of those who need help with the activities of daily living. At Brightview of Catonsville, three floors are dedicated to physically frail assisted living residents, with a fourth lower level designated for the care of seniors with Alzheimer’s disease. The square footage in assisted living communities is typically divided between residential units and common spaces. Common spaces at Brightview of Catonsville include a full commercial kitchen, three dining rooms, a living room with a fireplace, a library, a beauty salon, activity rooms, and outdoor patios. The lower-level Alzheimer’s wing comprises its own activity, dining, and outdoor spaces. The project’s developers had to overcome significant community opposition and design challenges, but the project now serves as a gateway to a well-established surrounding community. The project preserved much of the wooded site and the facility’s design reflects the architectural character of the site’s historic structures.
