The Sokaogon Chippewa Housing Authority acquired a vacant motel from the tribe and converted the building into 25 efficiency or studio-style apartments. The motel building was perfectly suited to create handicap-accessible homes. It is located directly off a main road, and all of the homes are at ground level. Now that renovation is complete, the building includes a common living area, kitchen and laundry space, secured entries to all the homes, and an on-site manager’s home.

This property was made possible through equity from the Low-Income Housing Tax Credit, which was provided by RBC Capital Markets.

Travois provided consulting and architectural services for the development and completed monthly inspections of the work in place during the construction period.
