HEATHERWOOD CONSTRUCTION CO. COMPLETES AFFORDABLE HOUSING RENOVATION
Heatherwood Construction Co. has completed a full renovation of the Jones Walker Palm Gardens Apartments, a 61,000-plus-acre community of 160 affordable housing apartment homes at 2902 Blount St. in Fort Myers. New owners, Redwood Housing of Austin Texas, made good on their promises to renovate the affordable housing community and temporarily rehouse tenants during the renovation. Heatherwood Construction was hired to fully renovate the older housing project to improve living standards and bring the units up to code. The project was led by the Bonita-Springs-based team’s senior project manager, Rafael Valdes, and additionally supervised by Charles Crouch and Levi Whiteleather. The design was done with MK Architecture and overseen by architecture project manager Carlos Cardet. All tenants were moved back into their new homes at the end of November. To celebrate the completion of this project and the Christmas season, Heatherwood Construction teamed up with Toys for Tots and Love & Light Ministries to have a gift giveaway for the residents at the Royal Palm Gardens Apartments, giving 130 children two-plus presents each.
