The site is currently vacant land will be transformed into a new three-story affordable senior living community, with 56 apartments. The new construction development will consist of 28 one bedroom and 28 two bedroom apartments. This community will serve seniors with incomes up to 60% of the Average Median Income (AMI). The design allows for an abundance of common space; including a wellness center and activity room. The building’s design includes the main lobby, community room, beauty salon and barber, and administrative office. The building will also offer storage lockers and a trash/recycling room. All these amenities will help enrich the lives of seniors, while offering them an affordable housing option. At least thirty-five percent (35%) of the building will be fully accessible for those with physical disabilities.
