County eco-devo sponsors regional senior housing project

Osage County Economic Development has announced that construction began earlier this month on a $4.7 million regional senior housing project. The project will provide 26 handicapped accessible or adaptable apartments for income-qualifying seniors age 55 or over. As planned, there will be two apartments each in Williamsburg and Harveyville, four apartments each in Lyndon and Overbrook, six apartments in Osage City, and eight apartments in Burlingame.

OCED director Stephanie Watson said each apartment will have  approximately 1,040 square feet plus a single car attached garage, two bedrooms, one bath, all kitchen appliances and a washer and dryer, patio, above-ground storm shelter, and all-electric energy efficient construction.

“We fully expect these duplexes to be rented as soon as they are completed according to the interest and inquiries we have had during the development phase,” Watson said.

Watson said it is anticipated that several apartments will available in July, with all apartments expected to be completed in September.

Rent amounts are to be determined according to the renter’s income level. Rent includes all interior and exterior maintenance, grounds maintenance and snow removal, and water, sewer and trash utilities.
