Pellettieri Homes: Senior, Affordable, Adaptive Re-use
The master plan for the historic Roebling Complex (also by CCH) called for mix of uses: retail, office, cultural and housing. The goal was to create vibrant 24 hour a day activity in the neighborhood. The first new senior housing to be developed within the Roebling Complex was sponsored by Pellettieri Homes, a non-profit corporation in association with Pennrose Properties, a for-profit developer.
The project involves the renovation of a two story wire mill built by Roebling in 1899. In order to accommodate the program, Clarke Caton Hintz proposed to add a third floor to the existing structure. Renovations were done in compliance with the Secretary of Interior Standards for Historic Structure The design preserves the exterior brick, the large industrial type windows and interior timber frame. There are a variety of apartment types; 12 efficiencies, 63 one bedroom and 1 two bedroom.
