Frances Apartments, a 56-unit housing community in the town of Sweden, recently achieved the designation of Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design for Homes — Silver.
The complex, developed by Cornerstone Group and Lifetime Assistance, completed construction in September 2017. It is consistent with New York State Office for Persons with Developmental Disabilities’ Transformation Plan to provide housing options for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities to live in the most integrated, least restricted settings possible.
The project’s eight buildings feature energy-saving and green features. At each stage of construction, the energy consulting team from Sustainable Comfort oversaw energy performance of the major trades. Lecesse Construction served as the project’s general contractor. SWBR provided architectural and construction administration services. Passero Associates was the civil engineer. Cornerstone Property Managers is the property management agent.
