Local housing projects get $3.4M boost from tax credits

Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

Indiana has awarded more than $14.3 million in rental-housing tax credits to 20 developments, including $3.4 million for four projects in Marion County.

The local projects include new apartments for seniors, the developmentally disabled and homeless veterans. One of the projects will make use of a former barracks at Fort Benjamin Harrison, and another is part of a larger development at the former Central State Hospital grounds.

The funding comes through the federal Rental Housing Tax Credit Program, administered by the Indiana Housing and Community Development Authority.

Lt. Gov. Sue Ellspermann's office said the 2013 tax credit allocation will fund nearly 800 housing units and could leverage as much as $130 million in private capital. The IHCDA also granted $7 million in loans to 12 of the chosen projects.

Here's a rundown on the Indianapolis developments:

— BWI LLC will create 57 units for seniors through preservation and adaptive reuse of two vacant complexes, plus new construction, at Clifton Square on the northwest side. BWI received $1.1 million in credits and a $500,000 IHCDA loan for the project at 1100 and 1101 W. 30th St.

— Affordable Midwest Housing Corp. will rehab a former barracks building at Fort Harrison in Lawrence, creating 21 units for the developmentally disabled. The Merici Village project is at 5707-5709 Lawton Loop. Affordable Midwest received $326,000 in credits and a $400,000 IHCDA loan.

— The Retreat on Washington will be 62 new one- and two-bedroom apartments for seniors, part of a larger mixed-use development on the former Central State grounds. DBAC Development LLC received $1.2 million in credits. The site is at 3100 W. Ohio St.

— The Point on Fall Creek II will offer 50 new supportive-housing units for homeless veterans at the southwest corner of Allisonville Road and 46th Street. Partners in Housing Development Corp. received $782,514 in credits.

    How is it that State tax credits are issued to an entity that isn't registered with the Secretary of State's office?

  1. Of what value is selling alcoholic beverages to State Fair patrons when there are many families with children attending. Is this the message we want to give children attending and participating in the Fair, another venue with alooholic consumption onsite. Is this to promote beer and wine production in the state which are great for the breweries and wineries, but where does this end up 10-15 years from now, lots more drinkers for the alcoholic contents. If these drinks are so important, why not remove the alcohol content and the flavor and drink itself similar to soft drinks would be the novelty, not the alcoholic content and its affects on the drinker. There is no social or material benefit from drinking alcoholic beverages, mostly people want to get slightly or highly drunk.

  2. I did;nt know anyone in Indiana could count- WHY did they NOT SAY just HOW this would be enforced? Because it WON;T! NOW- with that said- BIG BROTHER is ALIVE in this Article-why take any comment if it won't appease YOU PEOPLE- that's NOT American- with EVERYTHING you indicated is NOT said-I can see WHY it say's o Comments- YOU are COMMIES- BIG BROTHER and most likely- voted for Obama!

  3. In Europe there are schools for hairdressing but you don't get a license afterwards but you are required to assist in turkey and Italy its 7 years in japan it's 10 years England 2 so these people who assist know how to do hair their not just anybody and if your an owner and you hire someone with no experience then ur an idiot I've known stylist from different countries with no license but they are professional clean and safe they have no license but they have experience a license doesn't mean anything look at all the bad hairdressers in the world that have fried peoples hair okay but they have a license doesn't make them a professional at their job I think they should get rid of it because stateboard robs stylist and owners and they fine you for the dumbest f***ing things oh ur license isn't displayed 100$ oh ur wearing open toe shoes fine, oh there's ONE HAIR IN UR BRUSH that's a fine it's like really? So I think they need to go or ease up on their regulations because their too strict

  4. Exciting times in Carmel.

  5. Twenty years ago when we moved to Indy I was a stay at home mom and knew not very many people.WIBC was my family and friends for the most part. It was informative, civil, and humerous with Dave the KING. Terri, Jeff, Stever, Big Joe, Matt, Pat and Crumie. I loved them all, and they seemed to love each other. I didn't mind Greg Garrison, but I was not a Rush fan. NOW I can't stand Chicks and all their giggly opinions. Tony Katz is to abrasive that early in the morning(or really any time). I will tune in on Saturday morning for the usual fun and priceless information from Pat and Crumie, mornings it will be 90.1
