As one of the only affordable senior housing developments in the region, preservation was critical for this 3-story elevator building situated on two acres within a mile from Urbana’s central business district. Originally built in 1980, Sunnycrest was in need of extensive renovations. Brinshore refurbished the building envelope, energy systems and landscaping to create comfort, energy efficiency and a more appealing environment for residents and visitors. Building renovations extended to common areas, which included the refurbishment of a community room, on-site laundry facilities, two lounges, library, business center and a hair salon. Download Pdf
