The renovation and conversion of the 1929 Palace Hotel achieved a Platinum LEED award. The historic two- story hotel has been restored as a home for transitional age emancipated foster youth (18-24 years old). The hotel rooms have been converted into 14 efficiency apartments with a corner of the building kept as a small retail space and the remaining space used to house social, educational and skill building opportunities. Key to the renovation was installation of photovoltaic panels and fuel cell technologoy which provides 75% of the facilities power.
