The property was built in 1928 and converted from a hotel to multi-family housing in 1981. The property was then rehabbed and placed in service in 2005 under the Section 42 Low Income Housing Tax Credit (LIHTC) program. There is an existing regulatory agreement in place which requires 154 units to be rented to income qualifying residents earning no more than 60% of Area Median Income (AMI) limits, which are provided by the Missouri Housing Development Commission. The remaining five units are commercial units and are unrestricted. The property has just entered the extended use period as of this year.
The property is also a recipient of HUD Section 8 project based rental income assistance pursuant to a Housing Assistance Payment (HAP) contract. The current renewal contract has an effective beginning date of April 1st, 2018 and provides assistance for 154 units. The current HAP contract has an expiration date of March 31st, 2038.
Roosevelt Towne offers one and two bedroom floorplans. Residents benefit from community amenities such as an elevator, on-site parking, community room, controlled access, and on-site laundry facilities. There is also a reserved resident parking lot adjacent to the property.
