St. Anthony Terrace was completed in Feb. 2018, and serves low-income seniors age 55 and over, including seniors with disabilities. This development in Prosser, WA features a total of 61 units, including a mix of one- and two-bedroom units, for a total maximum occupancy of 154. Catholic Charities Housing Services of Yakima, WA was the development sponsor.
One of two affordable housing developments within the city of Prosser serving seniors, St. Anthony Terrace addresses an acute need for housing there—the development started leasing up in Dec. 2017 and achieved full occupancy by Feb. 28, 2018—just 20 days after receiving the final Certificate of Occupancy. Affordable rents mean senior residents don't have to choose between food, medicine and housing. This housing model provides stability and promotes healthy, community-oriented living.
ORFH worked in collaboration with the owner to secure funding from the Washington State Department of Commerce (Housing Trust Fund) and Washington State Housing Finance Commission (Low-Income Housing Tax Credits) to make this development possible. ORFH also worked with the Development Team throughout construction to ensure the housing was completed on time and within budget. The Development Team included ZBA Architecture and M.C. Lundgren Construction.
