Senior Housing Facility to be Dedicated to Councilman's Mother

Senior Housing Facility to be Dedicated to Councilman's Mother

 

A ceremony will be held Tuesday to dedicate the Aldene Kline Barlow Senior Apartments at 1327 H Street.

The event begins at 10 a.m. and will be hosted by Councilman Ricki Barlow, whose mother is the namesake of the apartments.

The new three-story apartment building is named to honor Barlow’s mother, who died at the location in a car accident. It is age-restricted and rented to seniors with household incomes less than 80 percent of area median income.

More than $6 million for construction came from the city of Las Vegas, provided by U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development and Redevelopment Affordable Housing Set Aside funds.

“My family and I are deeply moved that mother is being honored and remembered in this way,” Councilman Barlow said. “Like all of us, she cared deeply about our community and the welfare of our seniors. She would be proud that a fine building that will be home to so many carries her name.”

More People Calling Downtown Las Vegas Home

More People Calling Downtown Las Vegas Home

The Smith Center for the Performing Arts will open in just 11 days. It is just one more new development that is sparking a new interest in working and living downtown.

There are more and more people who are trading in life in the suburbs for urban living. They say it is all about being where the action is. Just three years ago, many apartment buildings downtown were uninhabited eyesores. Now, places like the Ogden are completely full with a waiting list.

The urge to move downtown is exactly what developer Sam Cherry was banking on when he decided to build two residential high-rise condo towers in 2002.  Soho Lofts opened in 2006 with 120 units. Newport Lofts opened in 2008 with 168 units. After a few investors went belly-up, prices came down. The towers are 98 percent occupied with waiting lists for rentals.
