Thrive Alliance Receives $1.2M for Crossroads Village Senior Housing Project in Seymour
Columbus – Thrive Alliance has received a $1.2 million allocation of low-income housing tax credits from the Indiana Housing and Community Development Authority (IHCDA). These funds will enable Thrive Alliance and partner Jonesboro Investments to move forward with construction of Crossroads Village, a $12.5 million, 64-unit affordable apartment complex at 500 South Poplar Street in Seymour, Indiana.
“We are extremely pleased to have IHCDA provide funding to make this project a reality,” said Mark Lindenlaub, Thrive Alliance Executive Director. Lindenlaub lauded the cooperation of local officials in helping bring the project to fruition. “The involvement and support of Mayor Luedeman, the city council, and other community leaders has been invaluable in helping move this project forward,” he said.
In June, the Seymour City Council voted to provide tax abatement for the project and to invest $51,000 in local funding to install new sidewalks around the property.
The complex also benefits from a unique relationship with neighboring Schneck Medical Center in Seymour, which plans to provide on-site access to health screenings, health education and counseling services, nutrition education, dementia care and other services. “We are excited to be working with the visionary staff at Schneck to create housing + services that encourages and supports healthy lifestyles. This will benefit not only the residents living at Crossroads, but will also provide opportunities to connect with the residents in the surrounding neighborhood,” Lindenlaub added.
“We are pleased to partner with Thrive Alliance to help address the growing demand for housing in Seymour and Jackson County,” said Jacob Sipe, Executive Director of IHCDA. “Crossroads Village will also support the City of Seymour’s continued revitalization and redevelopment efforts while at the same time providing a new housing option for seniors.”
The project is slated for completion sometime in 2022.
