Jamestown Village

Harkins renovated 275 apartment units and community building and built a new 4,200 sf clubhouse with playground. Many community amenities were added, including new mailbox kiosks, dumpster enclosures, storage lockers, and landscaping. Major systems were replaced or upgraded, including domestic water heaters, central heating boilers, central sewer pump, and the fire alarm and intercom systems.

The 9.5 acre complex has 16 three-story buildings with 25 separate entrances and stairways. The buildings, originally constructed in the early 1970s, are faced with brick-over-CMU walls, and have wood frame gable roof structures with asphalt shingles.

Since the apartment units throughout the complex were occupied, the owner moved tenants out 11 units at a time. Harkins was allowed three weeks to complete the renovation of these units and the adjacent stairway in that wing. Twenty-two units were under renovation at all times. All 275 apartments were renovated and clubhouse and community building completed in one year.
