Rural Finalist: Cottages and Gardens at Chesapeake

Demand is high for seniors housing in the area around Elkton, Md. The units at Cottages and Gardens at Chesapeake were fully occupied throughout the renovation process.

"This has been my home for 21 years, and I hope it will be my home for another 21 years … Great job," says Marian Creswell, resident of the newly renovated Cottages and Gardens at Chesapeake.

Homes for America and Severn Development had a long history with the three properties, having managed them separately for years before the redevelopment.

"I always like that we take existing housing and preserve it. It's the most sensible thing to do," says Kathy Ebner, development director of Homes for America.
