St. Mary’s Senior Living Open House Scheduled for September 28 | Community
The Sisters of Providence of St. Mary-of-the-Woods have scheduled an open house / hard hat tour for St. Mary’s Senior Living on September 28th.
The visit by appointment will take place from 1 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. on campus. Participants will have to sign waivers and wear closed shoes as the site is still under construction.
Candidates who have expressed an interest in living in the establishment have been invited, but there are still places available. Reservations can be made by appointment at www.liveatstmarys.com.
St. Mary’s Senior Living, formerly known as Owens Hall, will consist of 33 one-bedroom apartments and 31 two-bedroom apartments, with rates based on limited income.
There will also be four market-priced apartments available. In addition, 20 percent of the units will provide housing options for people with intellectual or developmental disabilities.
In 2015, the Sisters of Providence partnered with Flaherty & Collins Properties of Indianapolis to begin applying for tax credits from the Indiana Housing and Community Development Authority to help fund the project.
In 2018, the project received nearly $ 2 million in tax credits for the reallocation of Owens Hall.
Construction began in 2019 and housing development is scheduled to open on November 11, 2021.
Built in 1959, Owens Hall was originally used as accommodation for new members of the congregation. Years later it was redeveloped into a residence for the sisters and then included administrative offices.
