NCALL

This 28 unit apartment community located in Seaford, Delaware serves households that make 50% of area median income or less.

During this past year, Chandler Heights II underwent a major redevelopment of the 24 existing 3-bedroom apartments and added 4 new 1-bedroom apartments, totalling 28. The redevelopment made sure the units are preserved and updated to current standards.The original structure was built in 1992, and was in need of an overhaul. There was some water damage, the electrical systems needed updating, and sprinkler systems needed to be added. BHS wanted to install energy efficient HVAC systems to make the utilities more cost effective. Square footage of the bedrooms and kitchens were increased, and additional handicapped accessbile units were added.

The property was awarded low income housing tax credits from Delaware State Housing Authority (DSHA) and supplemental financing from USDA and DSHA. According to Bill Roupp, BHS's Executive Director, "We haven't done a project in 22 years in which NCALL hasn't been a key factor. They provide us with expertise and staffing that we just aren't capable of doing."
