HOBART — Hobart has broken ground on the Lake Park Senior Apartments, a new affordable development for senior citizens.
The apartments, at 10th Street and Lake Park Avenue, are being constructed by RealAmerica Companies, a construction company that specializes in building affordable housing in Indiana. The complex will be six buildings consisting of 56 apartment units and 39 villas as well as other facilities.
The complex replaces a failed and foreclosed office building. Units will be one- to two-bedrooms each, and will contain a washer and dryer, a kitchen with a refrigerator, dishwasher, stove, oven and garbage disposal, and a patio area. Villas will contain this as well as an attached single car garage. The complex is set to be completed by fall of 2017.
Ronda Shrewsbury Weybright, president of RealAmerica Companies, spoke at the groundbreaking about her hopes for the future with the city of Hobart.
“Throughout the years, we’ve been asked to return to communities we’ve worked with, so we’re hoping to build that same relationship with Hobart,” Shrewsbury Weybright said.
