Knoxville develops senior housing plans

Knoxville’s Community Development Corporation (KCDC) will hold a public meeting to present final renderings of a new affordable senior housing development to Five Points’ residents and community stakeholders on Monday, Feb. 29, 2016 at 5:30 p.m. at the Walter P. Taylor Boys & Girls Club, 317 McConnell St.

The development will be the first units to be built back onto the footprint of Walter P. Taylor Homes and Dr. Lee L. Williams Senior Complex. Construction of The Residences at Five Points is expected to cost approximately $10 million and KCDC plans to break ground on the senior housing development in April 2016.

“This 90-unit senior housing development will put into action the first phase of the Master Plan,” KCDC Executive Director and CEO Art Cate said. “Communicating with stakeholders and residents throughout this process is a top priority, and the community’s input and approval are critical to the project’s success. We are excited to present the final renderings for Phase I of the Master Plan to the community.”

At the Feb. 29 public meeting, KCDC and the Master Plan team also will update residents on plans for the next phase of redevelopment in the community.
