A few weeks ago, Curlin Commons, a 40-unit apartment community dedicated to serving seniors with low incomes, celebrated its ground breaking at Freedom Christian Center in Mooresville, NC. Culrin Commons is being developed through the joint efforts of the Catholic Diocese of Charlotte Housing Corporation and The Affordable Housing Group of NC, Inc. The project is expected to be completed by the end of 2009 and will be available to all seniors, regardless of religious affiliation, who qualify for low income housing assistance. The project will be targeted to low income seniors and will incorporate various “green” building features focusing on energy efficiency and reducing the facilities environmental impact on the surrounding community.
The North Carolina Housing Finance Agency, Federal Home Loan Bank of Atlanta, RBC Bank, RBC Capital Markets and The Roman Catholic Diocese of Charlotte assisted with financing the project. The green building features in the project are being made possible in part through a grant by The Home Depot Foundation. “These organizations have enabled us to provide new environmentally sensitive apartments that are affordable to low-income seniors on fixed incomes”, Paul Woollard, Executive Director of The Affordable Housing Group of NC, Inc., said today.
