AU Associates, Inc. is pleased to announce that they have been awarded affordable housing tax credits from the state of West Virginia for the renovation of the former high school on town hill in Sutton, Braxton County, WV.

AU Associates, in partnership with the Central Appalachian Empowerment Zone, will transform the former high school into 23 units of senior housing.  We are thankful to the Braxton County School Board for their patience and the Town of Sutton for their persistence in helping make this a reality.

Construction is expected to begin in the early fall of 2015 with an estimated construction cost of $2.4 million.

AU Associates, founded in 1990 by Holly Wiedemann on the principals of adaptive use, has been directly responsible for creating over 350 units of mixed income housing, 100,000 square feet of commercial space, and over $65 million of projects across the Commonwealth of Kentucky and West Virginia. AU’s developments, now spanning two decades, have received numerous local, state, and national awards.
