Fairhaven Gardens Completes Construction
Construction is complete on our multifamily affordable housing project, Fairhaven Gardens in Salem, Oregon. The project includes master planning, a complete renovation of a ten-building apartment complex, and the addition of a new community center and garden. The owner is Community Development Partners and the builder is LMC Construction.
The four-acre site required an overhaul of the pedestrian paths and common areas. As part of a new urban and landscape master plan, the central lawn is restored to unite all ten buildings into a cohesive whole. The housing includes a mix of studios, one-bedroom, and two-bedroom apartments totaling 87-units in all.
The community center and garden reside at the heart of the site. The center acts as a gateway to the garden, providing a meeting space/classroom and a sheltered . outdoor room for the residents to gather and socialize. The one-acre commercial garden will include a fruit orchard and a multitude of row crops. As the garden grows, the bounty will be enjoyed by the residents and sold to local restaurants and members of the community.
