Just a few finishing touches remain on People Inc.’s senior apartment building at the southeast corner of Linwood and Lafayette avenues where occupancy has begun. The three-story building includes 37 one and two-bedroom apartments ranging from 700 to 925 square feet. There is parking at the rear of the building for 37 cars.
Apartments are for a mix of income for people age 55 years and older. Seven of the units are for individuals with developmental disabilities age 55 years and older who live independently. Tenant income limits are based on current federal rates.
The building includes a community room with a small kitchen, on-site laundry facilities, ample green space and courtyards. Safety features include a secure entrance and a 24-hour on call emergency service.
The project was designed by Long Associates Architects. It is being built on what was a Millard Fillmore Gates Hospital parking lot. TM Montante Construction oversaw the work.
