The historic Hospice of St. John was an abandoned and blighted property in Lakewood that has been successfully redeveloped into 49 one- and two-bedroom apartments with affordability ranges of 30% to 60% AMI for seniors aged 62 plus. The historic site was placed on the State Historic register to preserve it as a landmark for the benefit of Lakewood. The buildings were completely refurbished to create a new low density and sustainable senior living community.
Eiber Village won the City of Lakewood 2020 Community Sustainability Award for Preservation and Efficiency. Many salvaged and repurposed construction materials were used to create an energy and water efficient property. The buildings were converted to 100% electric HVAC, water heating and cooking systems to eliminate fossil fuel burning on site. Energy and water conserving fixtures were installed throughout the project including an energy demand system. Electric vehicle charging stations and secure bike storage space encourage low emission transportation options.
