Installing Pervious PaversLast Friday marked the completion of our work on the Vida Senior Residences at Brightwood on Missouri Avenue in Washington, DC. Located in a neighborhood with green areas and significant historic sites, the Vida Senior Residences are affordable (50% Area Median Income) independent-living senior (55+) apartments. The five level building features 36 new, fully-furnished, multifamily units designed with seniors in mind. A rooftop terrace will house Vida's community garden, and a private shuttle will assist residents with their transportation needs.

The building was designed by Zavos Architecture and Design and is being developed by Dantes Partners. General Contractor Hamel Builders began construction on the project in August 2010, and the community center should be fully operational by October 1, 2011.

Completing Paver InstallationE-Landscape's scope of work included the installation of 2,300 ft2 of pervious pavers in the drive lane and parking lot. An interesting aspect of the project was the color selection of pavers. The Architect selected Hanover's Glacier White color with a Tudor finish for their low Solar Reflective Index (SRI) value. The use of pervious pavers with a low SRI value will improve drainage and reduce runoff on the property, while also cooling the air and reducing surface temperatures.

The Vida Senior Residences is an excellent addition to E-Landscape's expanding portfolio of commercial landscaping work in the senior living market, and was, once again, a great opportunity to work with Hamel Builders.
