#ThrowbackThursday The Sustainable Housing Innovations Partnership and the Riverwalk Point 52-unit complex provide sustainable housing options. The Sustainable Housing Innovations Partnership (SHIP) was formed in 1999 to create a model of a sustainable housing community for low-income residents.
In October of 1999, Bernardo Wills Architects assisted SHIP in searching for available sites to develop a 113-unit multi-family housing project. After the project needs were determined, a review of over a dozen potential sites started. Eventually, a site with favorable conditions was purchased and went through a short plat and public hearing process.
The first phase of the Riverwalk Point project is a five-building, 52-unit complex. The project was designed and constructed around the twin goals of sustainability and controlling upfront expenses.
