Construction Begins on Ohio Affordable Senior Housing Community

National Church Residences (NCR) recently began construction on its second senior facility, Avondale Senior Village, located in Dublin, Ohio. Upon its expected completion in late 2012, the affordable housing community will consist of 50 one-bedroom apartments and 50 two-bedroom apartments, for a total of 100 units.

“National Church Residences is excited to bring yet another affordable resource to the seniors of Dublin.  Avondale Senior Village not only marks National Church Residences’ largest senior community in Dublin, but the first one that offers adult day health right on the campus.  National Church Residences is proud to bring yet another level of service that will help seniors to successfully age-in-place, with dignity, thereby avoiding unnecessary or premature moves to skilled nursing or assisted living facilities,” says NCR president and CEO Thomas W. Slemmer.

NCR says Avondale Senior Village’s units will be available to single seniors whose annual incomes do not exceed $19,240, and senior couples whose combined annual income is $32,940 or less, following 2010 income guidelines.


There are multiple sources of funding for the construction, including National Affordable Housing Trust and the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. Total development cost is set at $16,630,366, and total construction at $11,370,016. NCR currently owns more than 330 senior and family-based communities throughout the U.S. and Puerto Rico with additional properties in developmental stages.
