The Derby Apartments
Located in Madison, Wisconsin, The Derby Apartments is a 70-unit affordable housing residence with 1,100 square feet of ground-floor office space for a local community group.
With partial funding for the project provided by the Wisconsin Housing and Economic Development Authority (WHEDA), 14 of the units will meet WHEDA accessibility requirements, four of which will have roll-in showers for wheelchair access.
The units will boast stainless steel kitchen appliances, shaker-style cabinets, cultured marble bathroom vanity tops, and in-unit washers and dryers. Each apartment will feature luxury vinyl plank flooring in the living areas and carpeted bedrooms. First-floor units will offer private patios and units on floors two through four will have private balconies. The building will integrate 2,600 square feet of amenity space including a common area with a full kitchen and a fitness room.
The first-floor office suite will incorporate three private offices, a conference room, a classroom, and a reception and work area.
The building will feature four stories of wood frame construction atop an underground precast parking garage with 61 parking spaces. The exterior façade will combine composite lap and panel siding with brick veneer.
The project was designed to meet Enterprise Green Communities standards and will integrate Energy Star rated appliances and a full solar array system on the roof to power the common areas.
