Ridgeline Terrace

UNIT broke ground on the Ridgeline Terrace Housing Development project in 2014.  The housing development is located near Glenn Square, on Mt. View Drive, in Anchorage Alaska. The site, about 6 acres, holds 70 mixed-income units of affordable housing and an onsite Community Center. 

The Community Center Building, known as the Jewel Jones Community Center, has a total square footage of 5,565 and features include a multi-purpose room, gathering space, full kitchen, office space/lounge, laundry room and Kids' Corps Head Start day care/education program to include kitchenette and kid/staff restrooms.

There are a total of 14 Townhome Style Buildings that make up the 70 Units.  There are 3 separate Styles of Buildings, all with storage and laundry hook-ups within each Unit.  Details are as follows: 

• 10 Buildings will have a total square footage of 6495 and will include 5 - 2 bedroom Units with a Garage.
• 2 Buildings will have a total square footage of 4777 and will include 3 - 1 Bedroom Units and 2 - 2 Bedroom Units.  All Units are Handicap assessable.
• 2 Buildings will have a total square footage of 4422 and will include 4 - 1 Bedroom Units and 1 - 2 Bedroom Unit.  All Units are Handicap assessable.

This project was built to meet 5 BEES Star Energy rating standards and features solar-powered hot water and electricity systems that are collectively estimated to provide 10 percent or more of the property’s total energy.

Working with the Community
UNIT, working in association with Cook Inlet Housing Authority and Alaska Craftsman Home Program,  developed a Job Training Program, administered by UNIT, which developed and trained local unskilled residents. Training was in the fields of general carpentry, electrical and plumbing. With most of the training in the field it did include a minimum of 20 hours of classroom training focasing on basic job safety, math, construction drawing interpretation and proper use of common tools and materials.
