Hot Springs, AR 71901
Owner: Hot Springs High School Limited Partnership; The ARC Arkansas
Developer: Vanadis 3
Architects: French Harris Architects
Contractor: Hill and Cox Corporation
Scope: Hot Springs High School is a historic icon in its own right. This building, once the graduating high school of former President Bill Clinton, went unused for a time. The 35,000 square-foot building is being put to good use today, thanks to Vanadis 3 and all of the development team members. Vanadis 3 led the building’s transformation from a high school building to a 32-unit housing complex designed specifically for handicapped persons.
Vanadis 3 provided consulting services on the conceptual design, financial planning and overall project management.
Result: This $4.3 million development utilizes universal design features for handicapped tenants. The development has been open since September 2005, and remains full to capacity.
