Robertson Apartments

The Robertson Apartments Project involves the adaptive reuse of the historic Robertson Building at 100 West Main Street, in Springfield, Washington County, Kentucky. The project will convert the currently vacant building into four one bedroom and three two bedroom apartments, for a total of seven units of affordable family housing. Three units will be income restricted at 60% AMI, and four units at 80% AMI. Previous stabilization efforts by the City of Springfield have left the building essentially gutted, with the exception of an ornate central stair. Historic Rehabilitation Tax Credit equity will be utilized on the project, therefore the construction of apartment units will be performed to the Secretary of the Interior’s Standards for Rehabilitation, under the guidance of the Kentucky Heritage Council and National Parks Service. The storefront and retail space facing main street will be restored for use by the City of Springfield in Heritage Tourism. Construction is expected to begin in July 2014.
