Successful LIHTC Project in Glendale
On March 24, 2010, Gorman & Company celebrated the groundbreaking of the Glendale Enterprise Lofts at the corner of 63rd and Glendale avenues, a new facility that will provide handicap-accessible, affordable housing in the Glendale Centerline Area. Glendale Enterprise Lofts feature 28 units of affordable rental housing that are fully accessible for the disabled.
Rents are expected to range from $521 to $790 per month and will be rented to income-eligible families earning between 40 and 60 percent of the area median income. Residents will enjoy amenities such as a theater, computer lab, community center, fitness center and washers and dryers in each unit. Additionally, this project features a controlled entry.
The Glendale Enterprise Lofts were partly funded with LIHTC and tax credit assistance money.
