Chatham Square was the 2011 winner of Indiana's Lt. Governor's Award for Excellence in Affordable Housing and Community Development. Built on the site of the troubled and now demolished Bridgeway Apartments housing complex, the environmentally sustainable and family-friendly homes have stabilized the Glen Acres neighborhood. The 32-building complex of 89 rental apartments and single-family homes sits on seven acres of land with amenities that include tennis courts, community garden, playground, community center, exercise room, and a fully equipped computer lab. Among the individually designed single-family homes is the zero-energy INHome – Purdue University’s highly acclaimed and affordable entry in the 2011 U.S. Department of Energy Solar Decathlon. The City of Lafayette was instrumental in securing resources for the project, including a $5.3 million NSP grant from the State of Indiana.
