Built in 1969, Ridgecrest Terrace is a Project-Based Section 8 Family property consisting of 19, two story buildings with one, two and three-bedroom apartment homes on 16.27 acres and 250 units. The exterior breezeways provide residents with exterior entrances to each apartment. The property currently features a community room and laundry rooms.
Ridgecrest Terrace will receive over $77,000 per unit in hard cost renovations as part of Steele’s acquisition. The scope of the rehabilitation is extensive, encompassing both exterior and interior work. Important building improvements include new roofs, paint, new central heating and air conditioning systems, sewer repair, and major plumbing and electrical upgrades. Project upgrades include parking lot paving, sidewalk repair, new LED lighting, new perimeter fencing and well as energy-efficiency enhancements; new community building with kitchen, art room and homework room with computer lab; renovated leasing & management office; upgraded laundry rooms; new playgrounds; and picnic tables.
Renovated apartment units will receive updated kitchens with all new appliances, cabinets and countertops; bathrooms with new vanities, toilets and tub surrounds; new wood plank flooring; new interior doors and windows; new fixtures; new plumbing and electrical repairs.
