Crescent Park's Redevelopment

Crescent Park Greens Up
Our 1960s Housing Complex is Moving Forward to a 21st-Century Showcase. This $60 million dollar renovation of 378 units, shared outdoor green spaces and community center is a rooftop outfitted with nearly one-megawatt of photovoltaic panels making this the largest affordable housing solar installation in the United States.

Okamoto Saijo Architecture designs green buildings.
Since 1991, the firm has successfully stayed within budget on large scale affordable housing renovations; infused private residences with green materials and passive solar features; and enhanced community centers in support of neighborhood revitalization. OSA places special emphasis on integrity, practicality and quality.

Our History
The original Crescent Park Residents' Council was organized in 1990 by a group of residents concerned about the proposed rent increase by the owners of the complex at that time. Due to their efforts, the increase was not at the level proposed by the management company.

Residents agreed that the group should continue to meet, bylaws were written, elections held, and the group became the Crescent Park Residents' Council. Since its formation, the Council has held regular monthly meetings open to all residents, participated in Neighborhood Councils, and organized Crescent Park community events including Easter Egg Hunts for the children. In 1994, the combined vision and efforts of the Council and EAH personnel made the Multi-Cultural Family Resource Center a reality.

In 2010, Crescent Park Residents' Council receives an award from the city of Richmond for its crime prevention efforts.


(Multiplying the Positive Concept developed by resident Ronald Blodgett June 2009.) People holding hands in a circle symbolize positive action and teamwork in this concept. Developed under the creative direction of the Residents' Council members, the Crescent Park Residents' Council brand creates empowering touchpoints in people's lives through the things they do. We developed a list of 89 key words thought to be associated with the essence of the brand without simply relying on words in the mission, values, and vision statement. The list is then reduced to the most essential and descriptive key words – teamwork, care, togetherness, communication, center, family, symbolic, circle, security, leadership, analytical, integration, and growth. All are equally essential. What is on the surface of the brand is just as important as the other brand characteristics. According to Webster’s dictionary, “Gestalt is a physical, psychological or symbolic configuration or pattern so unified as a whole that its properties cannot be derived from its parts.” All brand characteristics should work together, just as musical notes structured and arranged in a certain way work together forming a delightful melody. When design speaks, people listen.
