CMHA Outhwaite Legacy Park

Located at Quincy Ave and E. 40th Street, in the historic public housing development Outhwaite Homes Estate, Legacy Park Apartments is a 38,000 square foot, 3-story, multi-family apartment building consisting of 36 residences. It is situated on almost 2 acres of a 3.7 acre site shared with Outhwaite Buildings #1 and #2. There are 109 parking stalls that serve the new building, while allowing some relief to the current parking situation for the surrounding buildings. New landscaping and hardscaping at all buildings ties them together, while allowing pedestrian access to the local amenities. Bowen designed the entire building to be compliant with the Uniform Federal Accessibility Standards (UFAS). Ten units are completely handicapped accessible, while the remaining have the ability to be modified with minimal effort. Separately designed units are available for the audio and visually impaired.

Each residence is comprised of an open living room, kitchen with eat-in bar, accessible full bathroom and a one or two bedroom layout option. Additional spaces include an office suite, complete with two offices, supply room, reception area and private restroom, to be used by CMHA management.
