Museum Park is a lovely old building in the Quadrangle-Mattoon Historic District of Springfield. Formerly a hotel, the building was converted to housing for residents age 55 and over in 1986 and purchased by Winn in 2003. Eighty percent of the units are occupied by low-income households. In addition to the 114 studio, 1-bedroom, and 2-bedroom apartments, the building contains a computer room, gym, laundry room, lounge, basement storage, elevators, office, utility rooms, and parking lot.
Winn submitted the project to the Program in 2014. Upon acceptance, ABCD conducted an electrical audit and identified 325 lighting fixtures as cost-effective to replace throughout the building and parking lot. All replacements were done with LED lighting. Residents additionally received LED light bulbs and advanced powerstrips. Eversource provided 100% of the funding.
