Much Improved rendering

Developers broke ground in late October on Philadelphia's first LGBT-friendly low-income senior housing complex in the heart of Philadelphia's LGBT neighborhoods.  The $19 million project, a first of its kind is being funded with city, state and federal funds.  Resident eligibility requires that you be at least 62 year of age and earn less than 60 percent of the Philadelphia median income.

The project is being co-developed by the Dr. Manus Hirschfeld Fund (dmh), and Pennrose Properties.  The six- story building will be located at 13th and Locust Streets.  It will contain 56 one-bedroom units, a 5,000 square-foot enclosed courtyard, and multipurpose spaces that residents and the larger community can use.  Nearly 2,000 square-feet of retail space will front 13th street, Construction is said to be completed by late 2013.
