There is a growing call for developers to incorporate universal design to make apartments accessible to all regardless of age or disability. This video from Building Wisconsin TV features an affordable housing preservation project at Northwinds Apartments in Manitowoc. Host Stuart Keith meets with Mark Klann and Carol Keen from Cardinal Capital Management who explain the project and show how a standard bathroom is converted into universal design, meaning it can be used by people with or without disabilities without the need for adaptation.
