Cathedral Square awarded funding for design excellence

Posted by: VHFA on 6/24/2011

Enterprise Community Partner, a national leader in affordable housing and development capital, has selected Cathedral Square Corp. (CSC) in Burlington as one of four host communities for an Enterprise Rose Fellow.

Enterprise has awarded CSC a $144,000, three-year grant to fund fellowship work on a range of CSC design and development projects focused on excellence in senior housing. The fellowship also offers an opportunity to focus on policy issues that encourage sustainability and smart development.

Rose fellows are highly-skilled architects who wish to expand their skills doing community development work with an affordable housing organization.

Enterprise Community Partners conducts a national competition for the fellowship, and fellows are chosen from applicants who are emerging leaders in the field. Cathedral Square was chosen for its track record and goals to achieve design excellence and energy efficiency in service-enriched senior housing.

Architects who're interested in this opportunity should visit www.rosefellowship.org. The selection process is underway, and the Rose fellow will begin work at Cathedral Square next January.
