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.”

Each of the 39 units in the building is a one- or two-bedroom apartment with ceiling fans, ceramic tile, washer and dryer hookup and a view of the city. All utilities are included in the rent. A community room for social activities, theater room, computer room, exercise room, and a laundry facility on each floor also are available to residents.

Frank Hawkins, executive director of Community Development Programs Center of Nevada, said in a statement that his group worked with other public and private entities to spend more than $22 million to purchase the Madison Terrace public housing development, demolish it and build a total of 159 mixed-income, one- and two-bedroom apartment homes for seniors and families.

The new building is the final phase of a three-phase development. The first phase, the Sarann Knight Apartment Complex, opened in May 2010 with 82 two-bedroom/two-bathroom apartments in a four-story building. The next phase, the Ethel Mae Robinson Senior Apartments, opened in December 2010, with 38 one-bedroom units in seven single-story buildings.
