Castagna Consulting Group performed a design charrette to evaluate and plan for renovations to an existing 4-story 55,000SF building built in 1926. After the facility master plan was complete we provided Program Management Services to facilitate the design, development and construction of the project. The first 2 floors and basement house the YWCA activities including office space, meeting/activity rooms, a gym, and a pool in the basement. The third and fourth floors are residential apartments for disabled adults under s ection 8 housing. Each phase of the project required ongoing funding source evaluation and applications. Funding for pre-construction and design was obtained from the City Aldermanic CIP board, federal grants were identified and processed, and other state and local grant sources were also been identified and contacted as well as private foundations. Other aspects of the team included a tax credit consultant, historical consultant, and environmental consultant. Phase 1 was completed in 2006. Other phases are pending funding.
