Kramer Marks Architects | Mission First Housing
Bordentown, New Jersey
This project involved the development of 48 units of affordable, senior housing. The project features the adaptive reuse and rehabilitation of the former Eagle Shirt Company factory (aka Union Pants Mfg. Co.) into 21 one-bedroom apartments, and the new construction of an addition for 27 one-bedroom aparments. The building required substantial repairs due to fire damage and foundation subsidence. The three-story wood framed addition nearly doubled the footprint of the original building.Five of the 48 units will provide supportive housing or veterans. The sustainable design features of this project satisfy the standards of New Jersey's ENERGY Efficient homes and USGBC LEED for Homes programs.
