Historic Renovation


77 Units

Originally built in 1909 as Highland Park High School by esteemed American Architect, Charles M. Robinson, this historic Mediterranean Revival style structure is reinvigorating an active community of local seniors.

Purchased in 2013 by CPDC (now Enterprise Community Partners), the property was in foreclosure and dire condition suffering from deferred maintenance, outdated insufficient mechanical systems, and vandalism.

Balancing energy efficiency, historic preservation, and affordable housing, this development offers seniors comfortable apartment units, multiple lounges, a yoga and fitness studio, and a community theatre hall where they can participate in a range of lifestyle programming activities.

Sustainability Approach

Highland Park is now one of the most sustainable developments in its neighborhood and has been awarded Viridiant EarthCraft’s Multifamily Platinum Certification.
