Walnut Park Apts exterior view from the backWalnut Park was at high risk of being sold and losing its affordability.  REACH CDC, a non-profit provider of low-income housing and services, stepped in and with the help of a diverse array of sources of funding purchased Walnut Park with the mission to preserve the housing and provide a substantial rehabilitation of the property.

Rehabilitation was completed in June 2010 and today tenants enjoy many added amenities such as a community room, new laundry facilities, air conditioning, and a community garden with raised planting beds.  The rehabilitation included many Green Energy features starting with the envelope that included new siding, windows, roof, and insulation.
