We are pleased to report that the Sitkowski School Apartments financing is officially closed, recorded and funded as of January 15th, 2014! It has been close to 5 years since NOAH was selected by the Town of Webster to reinvent the historic school into 66 units of affordable senior housing and a Community/Senior Center.
The rehabilitation will be a substantial renovation of a locally prominent, historic, decommissioned school. Historic elements such as the original oak woodwork will be preserved where feasible, and the slender original wood floors will be repaired and restored. All exterior features will be maintained or enhanced with the addition of new parking areas, landscaping and streetscape improvements. The complex will have 59 one-bedroom apartment units and 7 two-bedroom units. Common amenities include lounges on each floor and a central laundry. The Community/Senior Center will include a large multi-purpose room with kitchen, a reading room, conference room and offices, an art space, an exercise room, a health office and a salon. Eight units will target residents earning less than 30% Area Median Income (AMI) using Project-based Section 8 Vouchers. In addition, five units will be for residents earning less than 50% AMI, with the remaining 53 units affordable to those earning less than 60% AMI.
Below please see the Plan for the Community/Senior Center and a photograph of the School Building:
