Srinath Pai Kasturi, LEED AP, Executive Vice President of Cadence McShane Construction Company, announces with excitement that construction has been completed on Wheatley Park Senior Living. This is the second phase of construction for the San Antonio Housing Authority.
Wheatley Park Senior Living is a 78,402-square-foot garden style senior living project. There are 80 units total that consist of 52 one-bedroom, 22 two-bedroom, and 6 three-bedroom apartments. The apartment building also includes a library with a theatre, billiards, community room and dining room.
Cadence McShane built the community on a 1.22-acre site. Site improvements include a parking area, recreation areas, sidewalks, site lighting, fencing, parking control gates and trash enclosures. Landscaping and site irrigation systems were also installed as part of the overall project. The four phased project will start phase three in June and that community will feature 119 units. Phase four will eventually create four new affordable housing developments on the east side.
“Our expertise in Senior Living has helped lay the foundation for this project to be successful and we are excited to deliver the third phase of the project for the San Antonio housing Authority,” stated Kasturi.
Wheatley Park is just one component of the Wheatley Courts Choice Neighborhood Implementation (CNI) Redevelopment Plan. Taking place in the Arena District in the Eastside Neighborhood of San Antonio, the new housing development will be built in three phases over a five-year time period. The total overall housing development costs are estimated to be approximately $70 million. This new CNI Development of mixed-income affordable and market rate apartment complex will be funded by a combination of funding through the San Antonio Housing Authority, the U.S. Department of Housing, the City of San Antonio, private construction and permanent financing, and by equity raised from the syndication of low income housing tax credits.
