WARSAW – Seniors will soon have another option for housing in Warsaw.
Earthwork and foundation work have started along Center and Market streets on the 802 Center, a 73-unit two-bedroom apartment complex available to those 55 and older who need affordable housing.
The project started in July and should be finished in about one year, said Brian R. Pozen, vice president of real estate development for the Englewood Group, Indianapolis.
That’s dependent on COVID-19 effects though, he said.
The Englewood Group also manages the low-income Pike Lake Pointe Apartments complex and Willow Park at Beyer Farm Apartments for seniors, both in Warsaw.
Pozen said the project will benefit the city by cleaning up the lot.
“For seniors, 802 Center provides a new unique option for safe and affordable housing,” he said. “Located close to downtown and within 1/2 mile of many necessary amenities, the community is also the only senior affordable community in the census tract.”
The center will be a single smoke-free building with an elevator and interior and exterior common areas. Those interested in getting an apartment may contact the Englewood Group at 574-376-2929 or sending an email to [email protected].
