Project Site The Sanctuary 6 residential units are organized within four buildings which enclose a courtyard. Three of the four buildings (Buildings A, C, and D) contain both community space and two floors of residents. The fourth building contains only residential units. (Building B) Along Broad Street there are plans to be a separate coldshell commercial building project owned by People’s Self Help Housing. Since Sanctuary 6 shares a street with the neighboring development, vehicular parking and access are wrapped around to the back of the site. This both mimic the neighbors layout and creates a more friendly relationship with the Iron Works project.

System, PG&E, CitiGroup Inc., American Electric Power, Intel Corporation Anthem, Sprint, Amazon, Starbucks, Dollar General, CVS Health, Veterans United Home Loans, Solarcity, and Hertz Equipment Rental. With organizations like these as tenants, the local job opportunities for the veteran residents increases. This encourages residents that may normally struggle with mobility or transportation to have the chance to work and develop a broader skill set. In addition, it provides a close workspace within their community that they can potentially work, volunteer, or shop comfortably.

Commercial Inclusion The commercial building on the southwest side of the site will serve as a streetfront to the units; protecting it from the traffic along Broad Street. People’s Self Help Housing has plans to build the commercial site as a separate legal entity from Sanctuary 6, using different sources of funding as well. The building will contain office spaces for tenants to rent out. The commercial site will interact with Sanctuary 6, therefore outlines of the building have been presented. A potential tenant is the neighboring entity, Iron Works who is currently seeking additional office space. Other potential veteran friendly clients include CSC (Computer Sciences Corporation), AT&T, Verizon, GE, Devita, State Farm, Capital One Financial Corporation, Army & Air Force Exchange
