Hiland Plaza Apartments

The Hiland Plaza Apartment Complex is a groundbreaking development specifically built to cater to the unique needs of the deaf and blind community in New Mexico. This innovative project was built with the Deaf, Deaf-Blind, Deaf+, and Hard-of-Hearing communities in mind and aims to provide a safe, accessible, and inclusive living environment that empowers individuals with sensory impairments and promotes independent living. The development features 92 apartment units with one-, two- and three-bedroom layouts. It also includes a small community park. The apartment complex is only the fourth development of its kind in the country.

Located in a convenient and centrally accessible area, the Hiland Plaza Apartment Complex features a range of thoughtfully built residential units. Each apartment is equipped with visual and tactile aids that facilitate effective communication and navigation.

The complex was built to achieve a LEED Platinum certification and to prioritize safety/ease of movement. Common areas, such as corridors, elevators, and recreational spaces, were carefully planned to accommodate the specific needs of the deaf and blind community. Jaynes Structures self-performed the millwork for this project which included incorporating unit casework, countertops, and commercial space work.
