HOUSTON - Be on the lookout for new apartments for our senior community in Houston's Third Ward!
Members of Houston City Council say they have unanimously approved a $10.25 million loan in Harvey Recovery funds towards building an independent senior living community in the 3300 block of Elgin St.
Based on a press release, the complex will be called The Citadel and offer 74 studio and one-bedroom apartment units with on-site services and amenities like exercise classes, social events, and a food pantry.
Rent will vary depending on an individual's unit size and the household income but will range from $343 - $963 a month.
Additionally, the apartment will be in a prime location near grocery stores, a multi-service center, parks, and schools.
"We are thrilled to help bring a senior apartment community to the Third Ward," Tom McCasland, director of the City’s Housing and Community Development Department said in a statement. "A large national nonprofit and a local nonprofit with roots in the community, partnering together, and using funds from different sources can have a tremendous impact on the number of affordable homes available to those who most need it."
