Homeless Safe Haven Project Completed

A historic brick structure has been rehabbed and expanded by Lakeshore Behavior Health, Inc.  The adaptive reuse project at the northeast corner of Sycamore Street and Michigan Avenue created a sixteen-bed homeless housing facility.  BHNT Architects designed and Savarino Construction built the $1.4 million project.

An existing 2½-story brick structure at 108 Sycamore Street, was renovated to contain the major living and dining areas and a new commercial-grade kitchen.  A two-story, 2,800 square foot wood framed addition to the rear contains most of the living areas.  It features 16 single-occupancy rooms, multiple common baths, two sitting areas, a living room, dining area and kitchen.  Exterior trim remains to be painted.
