John and Jill Ker Conway Family Residence 2
Designed by Sorg Architects, the 87,000 SF, 14-story mixed-use building will consist of 12 floors of micro studio apartments (124 units) over office and retail spaces on the ground level and community/office spaces on the second floor. Upon completion, the John and Jill Ker Conway Residence will offer a wide range of amenities including conference space, management offices, a lounge, fitness center, retail space, and social services. The project will follow Enterprise Green Communities for New Construction. Expected project completion is Winter 2015.
The John and Jill Ker Conway Residence has been named in honor of Jill Ker Conway and her late husband, John. Ms. Conway is a Pulitzer Prize-nominated memoirist and Harvard-trained historian. She has been influenced by the experiences of her father and her husband, both of whom were military Veterans whose lives were changed due to their respective war experiences. Her husband, John, was awarded the Military Cross for heroism.
