Casanas Village at Frenchtown Square is an 88 unit mixed-income workforce housing community within the historic Frenchtown neighborhood of Florida’s capitol city of Tallahassee. This development, a partnership with the non-profit Big Bend Community Development Corporation, is a single five-story residential building, with the leasing offices for the development contained within the multi-generational Casañas family home that has been preserved as part of the development. Casañas Village at Frenchtown Square contains 80 affordable and 8 market rate units. Additional common amenities, commercial bays for two “live/work lofts” and under-the-building parking are contained in the first floor of the structure, as well as design elements that harken back to Frenchtown’s days as a jazz mecca.
