Seawinds Housing

The 2007 Conceptual Plan, called Seawinds Apartment for HSI, will provide fifty units of housing for low-income individuals and families, including those who were formerly homeless.  Twenty units are studio apartments intended for short-term transitional housing, and thirty units are two-bedroom apartments, intended for longer-term housing.

Studios, apx. 444 Sq.Ft. in area, plus covered lanai, are built in clusters of three units.  Tow-bedroom apartments are apx. 807 Sq. Ft. in area, plus covered lanai, with 14 of the 30 units being on the second floor.  Two-bedroom housing cluster consists of 3 or 4 units, and has a landscaped sitting area between each cluster.  The two-story complex is apx. 22’-3” in height.

The 20 studio apartments are enclosed in a village-like setting intended to serve singles, and couples.  These residents will participate in a social services program called “Village of Hope” that will assist them in obtaining long-term housing.  Emphasis will be social services, with emphasis on adult education and career improvement.

The project also features a Facility Center for residents consisting of:
i)    Housing administration office
ii)   Resident support/counseling meeting rooms
iii)  Educational training classrooms
iv)   Computer center
v)    Shaded open play area
vi)   Temporary storage area
vii)  Loading area

The impact on the existing community will be negligible.  The entire Seawinds project is a gated facility with substantial provisions for security.  Residents are expected to be those who already utilize existing community services such as public schools and health care.  The overall objective of the project is to provide an opportunity for residents to move on to better employment and permanent housing.
