WYEP is a non-profit radio station that chose Sota Construction Services early in the design process. This was done to ensure that this fast track project would be built as green as possible and to meet the tight schedule and budget. The challenges of the site required deconstruction of existing buildings, 75' deep piles, and close coordination on this dense urban site. Sota worked with dggp Architects (now FortyEighty Architecture) and Steven Winter Associates to evolve a thermal envelope that was highly efficient yet met the budget.

With the hillside successfully managed, construction on the wood-framed building was completed on a fast schedule, all while maintaining careful attention to the many sustainable systems and features that make Plum a one-of-a-kind retirement residence.
