Developed by Cook Inlet Housing Authority, Caswell Court provides 34 affordable housing units for seniors earning no more than 60% and 50% of the area median income in Anchorage, Alaska. Four units are set aside for formerly homeless residents, 12 for disabled residents, and three for individuals under the Native American Housing Assistance and Self Determination Act.
Designed specifically with the senior demographic in mind, the development’s design is easy to understand regardless of the user’s experience, knowledge, language skills, or current concentration level. Navigating the building is easy and intuitive. To differentiate the building’s four floors from one another, each level is uniquely colored.
Caswell Court’s 26 one-bedroom and eight two-bedroom apartments are the latest addition to Cook Inlet Housing Authority’s Centennial Village, a senior housing campus made up of seven developments with 401 units
