Axley Place consists of a two building,13-unit development offering one, two, and three-bedroom units. All units include spacious floor plans, full walk-in kitchens opening onto generous living and dining rooms with abundant natural light and wonderful views. Axley Place also includes a laundry room, party room, meeting room, outside picnic area, and community garden.
On the first floor, Axley Place exhibits three ADA compliant units. The casement windows, sliders and double-hung, are superior to other window type due to their energy efficiency, and ease of operation for those with disabilities. Instead of common entries and long corridors, entrance to the units is directly from the exterior, like a single-family residence.
Dwelling interiors are juxtaposed with exterior spaces, and windows are placed to allow residents to survey the exterior areas. The site plan subdivides the residential environment into zones that "belong" to the residences. This creates a safer development where people feel a sense of ownership and responsibility for the common areas of the community, so that each space is "owned" and cared for, and any intruder senses a watchful community.
The building design, with its bold earth tones that individualize each unit, further creates a sense that this is a special place. Axley Place demonstrates Housing Opportunity Development Corporation's (HODC) commitment to quality. Skender Construction was the project's general contractor.
