Veterans Manor is a 52 unit apartment building located at 35th and Wisconsin Avenue. In a close partnership, The Center for Veterans Issues has worked with Cardinal Capital Management to develop this important and underutilized site. This four story building has one bedroom homes of approximately 550 square feet each on the 2nd, 3rd and 4th stories. Each resident has a fully functional kitchen, living room area, either fully handicapped accessible or partially accessible bathrooms, and a large bedroom.
The 1st story or ground level floor is split with tenant amenities & building operations occupying one half, and the other half being available for commercial lease. The tenant amenity/building operation area includes a fitness room, library, computer/tech center, media & recreation room, counseling rooms and management offices. The building has underground, secured parking of approximately 30 spaces and additional surface parking. Energy efficient windows, motion sensing lighting, zoned heating and cooling measures and energy star appliances are also being utilized.
A commercial kitchen and cafe aslo operates on site, its goal is to serve residents and the neighborhood nutritious and affordable foods while providing training, experience and job opportunities for interested veterans and neighborhood residents. Perhaps more important than the makeup of the apartments or the exterior look of the building are the extensive experience & services that CVI is bringing to the residents. These services include (but are not limited to) job counseling, computer training, VA benefits education and application assistance, on-site case management, drug and alcohol abuse counseling, GED tutorial and attainment, classroom vocational training, education, training & job training and health & wellness training.
