JOINT BASE LEWIS-MCCHORD, Wash. (PRWEB) May 08, 2020
Lincoln Military Housing (LMH), a partner to the U.S. Army for the construction and management of on-base housing at Joint Base Lewis-McChord (JBLM), reveals plans to upgrade homes in three communities to include upgrades to air conditioning, electrical, plumbing, luxury vinyl plank flooring, updated kitchens, and bathrooms.
"We firmly believe that improving the quality of homes and neighborhoods has a direct impact on family readiness and the overall morale of our military and their families,” said Nathaniel Stevens, Area Vice President for Lincoln Military Housing. "Our goal is to improve and maintain our communities’ long term while the focus is to modernize the homes all while providing our military and their family a place to live that they are proud to call home."
Joint Base Lewis-McChord housing, managed by LMH, will commence the multi-year interior renovation this summer, and when the project is complete, it will impact over 1,100 homes in Heartwood, New Hillside, and Davis Hill. Non-occupied homes are being made available to new move-ins upon completion. To ensure there is no disruption to current residents, occupied homes will be renovated upon move out.
Additional projects LMH has in the works at JBLM include:
- Renovations in the historic Bricks Community
- Improving traffic flow and adding parking options in Greenwood
- Laundry room renovations on 62 homes in Parkway to provide each home with a new washer and dryer unit
- Park improvements and converting carports to garages in Beachwood and Madigan
- New paving, sidewalks, siding, and fencing at various communities throughout JBLM
LMH’s partnership with Joint Base Lewis-McChord is part of the Military Housing Privatization Initiative (MHPI). MHPI is designed to use private-sector expertise and innovation to provide necessary housing more efficiently all while renovating faster and reinvesting back into the project. LMH acquired the 5,000 homes at Lewis-McChord Communities in April 2016. Lewis-McChord Communities has over 3,100 renovated homes and has designed and built over 1,400 new homes and 5 community centers for the families to enjoy and use for special events. LMH continues to focus long term while modernizing homes with a goal of providing the military and their family a place to live that they are proud to call home.
