Challenge: Architecture had to take into consideration a number of factors, including building code and Nickel Plate District design standards.
Solution: RealAmerica, LLC contracted RQAW as architect, structural, and civil engineer to develop a 9% low-income housing property for the bustling community of Fishers, Indiana. RQAW was responsible for coordinating with federal tax credit agency IHCDA, building code, and the Nickel Plate District design standards. This 4-story interior conditioned corridor building is lined with 70 one- and two-bedroom units and boasts generous amenities like a dog washing station, bike storage, exercise room, craft room, toddler rooms, and Janus Day Services. In total, a construction set was achieved over 16 weeks on this 2.3-acre site for the cost of $14M.
