Better Housing Coalition’s Beckstoffer’s block is featured on HUD’s “best practices” web page for mixed-income, age-inclusive, sustainable housing:
The transformation of a historic mill and lumber yard is furthering revitalization efforts in Richmond’s historic Church Hill neighborhood. Completed in multiple phases, the Beckstoffer’s Mill redevelopment includes 22 mixed-income apartments adjacent to 39 affordable units for seniors aged 55 and older. The project includes one of the first affordable senior developments in the country built to achieve net-zero energy performance. The adaptive reuse of the mill building was a finalist for the Urban Land Institute’s 2012 Jack Kemp Workforce Housing Models of Excellence Awards, which recognize exemplary and creative developments that expand workforce housing across the United States.
