TMHA to Build $8.9 Million Senior Housing Complex

WARREN, Ohio -- Trumbull Metropolitan Housing Authority plans to build an $8.9 million senior housing complex, Parkman Landing, at 2501 Parkman Road, the agency announced Thursday.

Groundbreaking for the mixed-income, independent living community is scheduled for January 2015, with tentative completion slated for June 2016.

Parkman Landing will provide affordable housing for seniors age 55 and older, officials said. The three-story, 60 unit, 66,961-square-foot building will consist of 40 one-bedroom apartments and 20 two-bedroom apartments. Amenities include a community room with kitchenette, lounge, patio, on-site laundry facilities and electronic door access control system.

“Parkman Landing will provide Trumbull County seniors with safe, comfortable and affordable housing that will add to their quality of life by providing a sense of community and encouraging an active lifestyle,” said Donald W. Emerson Jr., executive director of the Trumbull Metropolitan Housing Authority. “That’s the joint mission of the housing authority, Warren Housing Development Corp., and Parkman Landing Associates Ltd.”

The new complex will replace some outdated senior housing at Riverview Apartments, where one of that community’s two buildings will be demolished. Some seniors at Riverview will be given the option to move to Parkman Landing, while others will be able to move to other TMHA communities, including the remaining Riverview building.

Parkman Landing is being developed by Warren Housing Development Corp. in conjunction with TMHA. Financing was provided by equity competitively awarded by the Ohio Housing Finance Agency, the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, private nonprofit funding and city HOME funds.

 “As Warren’s downtown and parks revitalization efforts continue to move forward, Parkman Landing will help make the area a place where our senior population can find very nice, safe housing and the downtown business community will welcome their patronage,” said Warren Mayor Doug Franklin.

Partners for Parkman Landing include TMHA, Warren Housing Development Corp., Parkman Landing Associates, Ltd., and an affiliate of the Ohio Capital Corp. for Housing. Archi-Tekton of Warren and Shaker Heights, will serve as architect and the general contractor is being competitively bid.

TMHA, which celebrates its 80th anniversary this year, was one of the first public housing agencies developed in the state of Ohio.

The Warren Housing Development Corp., formed in 1977, operates The Elms in Warren, Heaton House in Niles, West Park Manor in Hubbard, The Ridge in Mineral Ridge and Kenmore Apartments in Warren.
