Detroit Independent Living


There’s a significant shortage of inventory for senior housing that’s predicted to get worse as the aging population is predicted to be 25% of the total population over the next decide. 

This 138-unit former senior housing building will be redeveloped as a 76-unit senior housing in a service-enriched environment where seniors can live independently. A third-party service provider will also be on site to provide assistance with the 6 Activities of Daily Living (ADLs) for Medicaid Waiver eligible seniors. As a tax credit development, affordability is set at 60% of the area’s Average Media Income (AMI).
