Jane Jones was overwhelmed when she first visited the 6 North Apartments building in the Central West End.
Built in 2004, it’s the nation’s first building constructed entirely under the universal design concept, which incorporates features that allow people with disabilities to live in the space. It can be defined as "the design of products and environments to be usable by all people, to the greatest extent possible, without the need for adaptation or specialized design."
Jones, who is blind, moved there in 2012. She couldn’t imagine living anywhere else.
