LHB worked with the St. Cloud Housing Redevelopment Authority and the Veteran’s Administration to design a three story, 45,000 square foot apartment building. The single- occupancy rooms are available to veterans who are in transition from a chemical dependency treatment facility and in need of supportive services and housing. The building contains 60 efficiency units, each with a kitchenette and bathroom in 500 square feet of living space. Amenities include a caretaker apartment, media rooms, a communal kitchen, a community room, storage lockers, and offices for case aides. Sustainable design principles such as geothermal heating and cooling and extensive daylighting are included in the project.
