Jonesboro project to add affordable senior housing

The Jonesboro City Council approved the rezoning of two parcels of property on north Fayetteville road near North Main Street from “Neighborhood Commercial” to “Multifamily Residential” at a called meeting last month.

One of the parcels, a 6.25 acre tract, was also annexed into the city.

The proposed project for the area is a senior housing project for limited income senior citizens, aged 55 and over.

The project is proposed to consist of a three-story building of 60 units. The residences will feature one- and two-bedroom spaces, with rents ranging $500 and below, based on income.

Roseman & Associates are developing the project in association with Fayetteville Gingercake Road LLC.

Similar developments have been completed in Athens and Covington.
