Uptown Acres

192 Permanent Supportive Units, Clinic, Community Rooms, Community Kitchen, Grocery, Open Space

The project is the outcome of our client’s bold vision for holistic partnerships between city and regional agencies alongside health and housing service providers to create Uptown Acres – a supportive community centered around wellness, healthy living, and cultivating social bonds. The development program includes a children’s health clinic, a fresh food community kitchen, and a hub of various other community serving spaces with a total of 192 units of affordable and supportive housing and additional bridge housing for a diverse unhoused community.

An internal pedestrian oriented open space network connects the project’s 3 phases, knitting together public and semi-private outdoor shaded nodes and connecting to the future Hamilton River Park.  Transparency and ample landscaping extend the project’s vision for connectivity and healthy living into the interior spaces, while the angled masses of housing above create a dynamic rhythm which supports visual connectivity and natural ventilation. The bridge housing program is a stand-alone complex anchoring the rear of the site, framing a private outdoor space and supportive services.
