Open House Info:

Omni Winn Developer LLC, a not-for-profit developer of affordable housing, will be sponsoring an Open House in conjunction with National Grid to showcase the deep energy retrofit of a c. 1910 3-family house in the West End of Providence. The project is part of a larger re-development initiative called Phoenix Apartments -- totaling 83 units of affordable rental housing, in 26 buildings, supported by federal Section 8 program subsidies. These multifamily properties, many of which were in foreclosure, were acquired by Rhode Island Housing. Omni Winn Developer was designated in by Rhode Island Housing to build the Phoenix DER. The Project Team for the Pheonix Apartments development includes: Rhode Island Housing; Winn Residential; Durkee Brown Viveiros and Werenfels Architects (Providence); and Pezzuco Construction Company (Cranston, RI). The National Equity Fund (Chicago) is a major financing partner, as is Rhode Island Housing. The super-insulated enclosure, made possible through financial and technical support from National Grid and Building Science Corporation, includes full envelope insulation and air sealing, new windows and doors, and new balanced ventilation systems. Each apartment’s heat and hot water will be provided by a wall-mounted highefficiency sealed combustion condensing boiler serving hydronic heating and domestic hot water needs. This substantial rehab began in February 2012 with estimated completion by December 2012. Here are some of the highlights of this Providence 3-family DER project:
