Successful Re-Development at Chestnut Crossing

April 30, 2020

Today Chestnut Crossing is a place that residents are proud to call home.

Previously owned by the YMCA of Greater Springfield, 104 single room occupancy (SRO) units were converted to 101 enhanced single room occupancy units in this redevelopment. Renovations include unit expansions to include kitchenettes; modern, efficient heating systems; handicapped access bathrooms; a large community room, with office space for service professionals; and security improvements.

"Being a phased project, with residents living in the building during construction could have made this project a little more difficult than most," Kleiner noted. "However, the residents were outstanding in their understanding and willingness to line alongside us during the past year."
