A new client for Stronghold, the San Diego Housing Commission, awarded Stronghold the $3 million rehabilitation of the Historic Hotel Sandford Project located in downtown San Diego. The Hotel Sandford was built in 1914 and is a historical building listed on the local register of historic resource. The four-story building with a full basement was originally remodeled in 1989 for affordable senior housing. Now, Stronghold is partnering with the San Diego Housing Commission to rehabilitate the hotel for its continued use as affordable senior housing by performing structural upgrades, as well as exterior and interior rehabilitation. The work includes painting, re-roofing, window repair, landscaping and sidewalk improvements on the outside of the building. On the interior, Stronghold will provide painting, new carpet, flooring, electrical, mechanical and plumbing improvements, as well as accessibility improvements and hazardous material abatement. Construction will be phased as the building remains occupied. As everyone knows, Stronghold is a leader in seismic upgrades, renovations, and historical rehabilitation projects, so expect success from our Project Team and crew as they “blow the socks off” the Housing Commission.
