Ground broken on new senior housing project
Plymouth Church Neighborhood Foundation and CommonBond Communities, two experienced nonprofit housing providers, in partnership with Minnehaha United Methodist Church and Lake Nokomis Lutheran Church, broke ground September 25 on Riverview Apartments, a housing complex comprised of 42 units of affording housing for seniors in the Nokomis East neighborhood of Minneapolis.
The congregations led initial community support for the $8 million project, which was awarded $6 million in Housing and Urban Development funding, the first such investment in Minneapolis since 2002. The apartments are expected to be completed by late summer 2012, with a goal of full occupancy in early winter 2012. Individuals 62 years or older with limited incomes are eligible.
