Brookside Residences is a senior residential development providing 62 one- and two-bedroom apartment homes in one four-story green building. OHFA funding enabled the owner to develop a community in a park-like setting, which is surrounded by privacy and nature. The site, itself, will feature trails and amenities around the natural brook that runs through the site, as well as approximately four acres that is being committed to a conservation easement. Amenities of the project include ample community gathering and meeting spaces, fitness studio, pet grooming area, supplemental resident storage, a cyber café with internet access, and an on-site manager.
The development is in close proximity to essential services, including a variety of shops and businesses. The unit mix includes nine units affordable to and occupied by households at or below 30% of the AMGI, 22 units affordable to and occupied by households at or below 50% of the AMGI, 22 units affordable to and occupied by households at or below 60% of the AMGI, and the remaining nine units are market-rate. The project received consideration for being located in an area that is part of an economic development plan, and received exceptional development consideration for creative design and healthcare. Additionally, the project will be participating in the Ohio Department of Medicaid Subsidy Demonstration Program.
