BLOOMFIELD, New Jersey – Major renovations at Kinder Towers are preserving affordable senior housing in Bloomfield, New Jersey. Completed earlier this year, the $6.6 million renovation provides the senior residents with numerous improved amenities in their apartments and community spaces.
“Even with diligent maintenance and management by National Church Residences since its opening in 1986, the time was right for Kinder Towers’ first-ever major renovation,” said Vice President of Affordable Housing Eric Walker. “We’re pleased to be improving and preserving 99 affordable senior housing apartments in this community.”
National Church Residences built the 62-and-older community at 400 Hoover Avenue through a U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) program. Called the Section 202 Supportive Housing for the Elderly Program, the government initiative’s goal is to expand available affordable housing for low-income seniors through financing and rent subsidies, allowing them to live independently with supportive services. The organization wants to thank HUD for providing this initial capital to build Kinder Towers and for remaining committed to ongoing rental assistance for residents.
Major upgrades to each of the studio and one-bedroom apartments included new appliances, bathroom vanities and windows throughout the building, as well as HVAC systems. The refreshed and welcoming community room features a new kitchen area, seating, lighting and window treatments. A state-of-the-art, television also was added to the library.
“Our residents have been delighted by the enhancements to their apartment homes and common areas,” added Walker.
With support from lender Orix Real Estate Capital, National Church Residences undertook this substantial renovation as part of a continuing commitment to help seniors nationwide remain at home for life. In addition to the recent upgrades, Kinder Towers offers on-location laundry, a picnic area, scheduled transportation and an emergency call system.
National Church Residences has 952 units of senior housing spanning 12 communities in the State of New Jersey.
