Rosa F. Keller Building

Rosa F. Keller Building

The Rosa F. Keller Building at 2222 Tulane Avenue is an apartment building providing 60 units to fill a great need for supportive homeless housing in the community. The supportive housing facility provides on-site caseworkers to residents transitioning out of homelessness, about half its tenants. The remaining tenants are renters that meet low-income criteria.

As the general contractor on this project, Woodward maintained the site layout of the previous construction that existed on the site in order to minimize demolition costs and reduce the cost of new foundations. Existing piling and foundations were reused as the new building went up. The building features an interior open air courtyard with open walkways for access to the apartments, as well as on-site parking underneath the building. The Rosa F. Keller building was built to Enterprise Green Communities standards, with each unit featuring an open floor plan, hardwood, ceramic, and linoleum flooring.

Woodward is currently serving as the general contractor on another supportive housing project at 2101 Louisiana Avenue.
