Posterity Heights, a high-concept development for certain low-income residents has been granted more than $1.38 million in assistance from the Indiana Housing and Community Development Authority.
The Fort Wayne Housing Authority will receive $882,000 in low income tax credits and $500,000 from the state agency’s Developmental Fund to construct Posterity Village, the project’s third phase.
Housing authority executive director George Guy says Posterity Village will provide rent-to-own homes and supportive housing to families dealing with intellectual and/or developmental disabilities. There will be 58 units including duplexes, cubes and brownstones and cottage-style one- and two-story single family homes.
“The development will feature a sustainable design concept” and supportive services for residents, according to a news release.
Posterity Heights is being developed on the former site of McMillen Park Apartments in the 4200 block of Plaza Drive. Already nearing completion is Scholar House, two apartment buildings with 44 units designed for students pursuing higher education, the Fort Wayne Journal Gazette reported.
