The Residences at Jennings Place, II is the second phase of this affordable senior living campus. Funding involved Federal and State Low Income Housing Tax Credits administered by the Missouri Housing Development Commission.
This new phase features a three-story (42 unit) congregate building with multiple amenity spaces and 30-two-bedroom and 12-one-bedroom apartments. Two additional six-plex villa buildings were also added to the campus, with eight 2-bedroom and four 1-bedroom villas.
A few of the remarkable features include a large communal dining room and kitchen, expansive exterior patio, bio retention pond, fitness center, two multi-purpose areas, and a theater/screening room.
The project was developed by RR Jennings Developer, LLC and Fairway Construction served as the general contractor.
