Roswell officials have cut the ribbon on the city’s first low-income, independent senior living space, the Veranda at Groveway.
The 101-unit project at 735 Myrtle St. offers one- and two-bedroom apartments for seniors 62 years of age and older, officials said. Construction, managed by Schmit & Associates, began in August 2016. The first residents began moving in last October.
“It’s exactly what we need in the city of Roswell,” Mayor Lori Henry said. “We need to embrace our community and be inclusive of all residents, and I think this is a step in that right direction.”
The development was supported by $100,000 in HOME Investment Partnership funds and $177,587 in Community Development Block Grant monies to the Roswell Housing Authority. The city contributed about $966,641, making possible waterline, sidewalk, roadway and other infrastructure improvements.
Representatives of the city, Housing Authority, Schmit and The Integral Group LLC participated in the ribbon cutting.
