Historic Whitlock Place named Outstanding Rehab Investment by Indiana DNR

Historic Whitlock Place has been named Outstanding Rehabilitation Investment Tax Credit Award by the Indiana Department of Natural Resources Division of Historic Preservation & Archaeology.

The project, an adaptive reuse development that creates 56 apartment homes in the historic Culver Union Hospital in downtown Crawfordsville, consists of studio, one and two bedroom apartments. Nearly every unit is an individual, unique design, and features Energy Star windows and appliances to achieve the Silver level of National Green Building Standards for energy efficiency.

Historic detailing within the building were retained through construction, such as bullnose plaster corners, terrazzo floors, unique wood-frame windows, and painted stencil detailing in the hallways. Community Activity areas include a community atrium, a community room with a TV, a computer room with free internet access, and an exercise room with equipment. The exterior will also be landscaped with trees, shrubs and garden seating. Paved parking is also be provided on-site.

“It was extremely important to keep the historical aspects of the building and enhance the exterior and interior look and feel of the building,” said Julie Collier, Vice President of Development for Flaherty & Collins Properties. “We’re thrilled with the results of Culver’s transformation.”
