Recent development projects on vacated neighborhood lots now offer new living opportunities to residents. Two abandoned school buildings, formerly Mt. Washington Elementary and Seven Oaks Elementary, in Independence and Kansas City have been reopened as new independent senior living apartments for residents 55 and older.
LINC staff worked to reopen the abandoned buildings through community involvement in the local LINC site councils. This effort is to provide quality living for seniors who are looking to move to more manageable homes while remaining in their community.
The now populated renovated Mt. Washington location offers 45 modern apartments with one and two bedroom units. The average apartment offers 700 square feet of space to residents. Seven Oaks Estates provides 28 two bedroom units and 16 one bedroom units.
