The Weber Group is proud to be the builder of an exciting adaptive reuse project at the old East Corbin School in Eastern Kentucky. The project includes 32 units of multifamily housing. Together with architect Steve Kersey we will be working to bring this important structure back to life. Located in Appalachia, Corbin has a high unemployment rate and a number of abandoned structures. By transforming the school into this new affordable apartment building, 33 local jobs will be created and what had become an abandoned eye sore will become an important structure in Corbin. The Greater Corbin Housing Apartments are set to open in the spring of 2014. To learn more about this housing project click here.

This year Weber Group was proud to be part of the federally funded initiative for vacant, abandoned, and blighted properties to be regentrified as owner-occupied community builders. The Mid Town neighborhood in quiet New Albany, IN had great housing stock but needed lots of love and care. Under the direction of New Directions Housing Corporation, Weber Group designed and renovated over 20 single-family homes. On December 22, several of the homes were featured on HGTV’s House Hunters as a young teacher, Erin, selects and purchases her first home. What a way to celebrate the end of a great year!!! We are passionate about many things but having a quality place to call home is high on the list.

A beautiful new Weber designed and built senior housing community is set to open in Alvin, Texas. Alvin is in Metro Houston, Texas and the burgeoning new development is about to bring together two well known Weber service areas: senior housing meet student housing. Located near Alvin Community College-Alvin’s Cultural Center and home of the Nolan Ryan Baseball Museum, residents of Melbourne Senior Apartments enjoy reduced tuition and full use of campus facilities and amenities in a special arrangement with the College and Louisville based developer, LDG Development. For the first time in its 60-year history Alvin Community College enrolled 5,200 students a 14% increase over last year. Houston Newcomer Guides says older students are responsible for much of the College’s growth. The U-Shaped design encourages conversation and interaction among residents, should be fun to see what unfolds when Melbourne Senior has its official grand opening on May 25!
