Scope: Historic renovation of Legacy at Central Place included 44 independent living apartments from the former Williston Junior High, built in the early 1930s. The preserved unique Art Deco qualities of this landmark building has elements such as the sweeping terrazzo stairwells and multi-story decorative front window that have been fully restored. Former classrooms and offices have been converted into graceful, loft-like one and two bedroom apartments. A new elevator has been added in the building’s center to ensure easy accessibility. All of the apartments are designed according to the principles of universal design, intended to be adaptable to meet the changing needs of residents as they “age in place.” The apartment layouts feature large new windows which bring a lot of natural light into many of the rooms.
