HomeRise and Paul Taggert Architects revitalized this 99-unit, 13-story property serving seniors and disabled individuals. This building was renovated under the Rental Assistance Demonstration (RAD) program through the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, which allowed for a voluntary, permanent conversion of public housing to privately-owned, permanently affordable housing. 666 Ellis Street opened its doors to tenants in May 2018.
The renovation of 666 Ellis Street included the replacement of unit interior fixtures and finishes, reconfigured management and staff offices, building system upgrades including elevator modernization and fire/life safety, accessibility upgrades, and new exterior landscaping. In addition, building maintenance and operations were improved. Most importantly, no residents were permanently relocated during the renovation.
HomeRise owns, maintains, and provides resident and clinical service programs for the 120 seniors and disabled individuals who reside at 666 Ellis Street. These programs – spanning everything from case management, one-on-one counseling, community workshops, health assessments, treatment planning, crisis intervention, and more – are aimed at supporting residents aging in place and promoting self-sufficiency.
