Affordable senior housing planned on Elmira’s Southside

From Stargazette:

An affordable 50-unit apartment complex for seniors age 55 and older is being proposed on the Southside of Elmira.

CDS Monarch Senior Living of Webster hopes to build the senior living development on former Elmira school district practice and athletic fields at 919 Maple Ave., Ben Gustafson, a civil engineer on the project and a principal at Hunt Engineers, told Elmira City Council at its workshop session Thursday.

“There’s been no new affordable housing developments here in over 10 years, and there’s really a strong demand for it,” said Ray Wetherbee, affordable housing manager with CDS Monarch.
