Abilities @ Crestview II

Wednesday, June 5th, 2013

In 2000, Abilities of Florida received $1.17 million of HUD Section 811 funding to purchase and renovate 18 condominium units in the Crestview Condominium complex in Cocoa. Thirteen years later, Abilities received $873,000 million in Section 811 funding to acquire and renovate an additional seven units. JPH Associates is pleased to announce that a total of 25 units or 20 percent of all units in the complex are now accessible for persons who are disabled and whose household incomes are defined as very low income. The newly renovated units are but a handful of units within the State of Florida that have received the Florida Green Building Coalition Green Certification designation. This designation allowed for the inclusion of features such as high SEER air conditioning/heating, energy star appliances, low flow plumbing fixtures, impact resistance/low e windows, low emission paints, and the incorporation of recycled materials throughout. The end result is a more efficient and intelligent design, plus significant reductions in future operating costs, which will directly benefit those tenants who are physically disabled.Abilities @ Crestview II Abilities @ Crestview II WallkwayAbilities @ Crestview II Kitchen AreaAbilities @ Crestview II Apartment
