Lexington Commons Real Estate Case Study

Adaptive Reuse/Supportive Housing

Lexington Commons provides 48 efficiency apartments designed for single adults who have experienced significant periods of homelessness. Rent is income-based, and residents are offered Supportive Housing services, an important aspect of our Advantage Services programs offered to communities where residents are coming out of homelessness. This typically includes our most intensive case management for people with serious barriers to stability.


CommonBond’s development of Lexington Commons has transformed this abandoned nursing home facility into permanent homes and has offered a supportive, sober community for each resident. The project was designed to reuse the existing building structure and exterior brick, and to upgrade building systems, improve health and wellness of residents, and minimize environmental impact.
