Sitkowski School Apartments
Dellbrook JKS and Architect DiMella Shaffer completed the substantial renovation and rehabilitation of the Webster, MA locally prominent, historic, decommissioned Sitkowski School into 66 units of housing for elderly and senior citizens as well as a Community/Senior Center. Historic elements such as the original oak woodwork was preserved whenever possible and the slender original wood floors were repaired and restored. All exterior features were maintained and enhanced with the addition of new parking areas, landscaping and hardscape improvements. The complex has 59 one-bedroom apartment units and 7 two-bedroom units. Common amenities include lounges on each floor and a central laundry. The Community/Senior Center includes a large multi-purpose room with kitchen, a reading room, conference room and offices, an art space, an exercise room, a health office and a salon. Eight units are intended for residents earning less than 30% Area Median Income (AMI) using Project-based Section 8 Vouchers. In addition, five units will be for residents earning less than 50% AMI, with the remaining 53 units affordable to those earning less than 60% AMI.
The Sitkowski School Apartments Project is LEED GOLD Certified.
