Gateway Senior Housing

Fremont, MI

A comfortable senior housing community

Project Overview

Our team completed the historic renovation of the former Freemont High School transforming it into The Gateway apartments for senior citizens.

The project involved the substantial rehabilitation of the existing building to create 38 apartment featuring spacious one-bedroom and two-bedroom units as well as studio units. The courtyard, which was restored to its original configuration, and many of the school’s historic features were preserved during the renovation. The building shell underwent restoration treatment of the masonry and stone. Windows and doors matching the original style and scale were installed as part of the project, as were interior plaster and wood trim repair and restoration of original 12’ ceiling heights. Corridors were designed to maintain their original feel including locker bays, stained wood trim and doors and traditional lighting fixtures.

The Arts-and-Crafts style building is listed on the National Register of Places and was originally constructed in 1926.
