Senior complex to offer affordable housing for all generations in the Falls.
With Philadelphia set to lose 1,700 units in the next 5 years, NewCourtland’s expansion into inclusive housing could not come at a better time. The City has just approved them for a mixed-use residential community at their location on the 3200 block of Henry Avenue, where 85 affordable senior apartments have been occupied since 2019.
Plans call for 175 market rate and senior housing apartments. 135 of the apartments will be sized and priced to appeal to a wide range of income levels, targeting young professionals and new families. 40 units will be reserved for older adults and subsidized for those who financially qualify. In addition, 20 of the 175 units will be fully equipped for individuals who need enhanced access and support due to a disability.
This community’s amenities include a roof top lounge, charging stations for electric vehicles, storage facilities, a dog park, community garden, exercise room, ball courts, two guest apartments, community and event spaces, and a maker’s space which serves as a location for individuals, groups, and organizations to rent for projects and hobbies.
Floorplans will include a variety of models:
- 21 Studio Apartments (310-380 sq. ft.)
- 105 One-bedroom Apartments (460-700 sq. ft.)
- 33- one-bedroom plus apartments (include a den, 690 – 934 sqft.)
- 11- two-bedroom apartments with single and bi-level options (1,000– 1,700 sqft.)
- 3- three-bedroom apartments (1,700 sqft., bi-level)
- 2- Guest Apartments (260 sqft.)
No timeline yet or word on when the project will break ground — the sooner the better, considering Philadelphia’s current housing crisis. “Whether an individual is a young professional, working tradesman, older adult, or if a couple is starting a new family, NewCourtland Apartments will offer an affordable and accessible housing options with great amenities,” said Joe Duffey, (CEO and president).
