St. Francis Xavier Apartments is newly constructed 22 unit development for low-income seniors (at or below 50% of the Area Median Income) age 62 and older. The development will be located at 8918 Main Street on a 3.5 acre parcel in the Borough of McKean, Erie County, Pennsylvania. The beautiful community setting is surrounded by trees and green pasture to the south and west, residential homes to the east and a church to the north. The two-story building will feature a centrally located elevator to allow maximum and efficient circulation space. The elevator, zero step entrance and hallway/door passages will also allow for full visitability. Tenants will have access to the numerous amenities located just several blocks from the site, including the local post office, grocery store, municipal building, places of worship, convenience stores and much more. Primary financing for the development is provided by a US Department of Housing and Urban Development Section 202 Supportive Housing for the Elderly Program grant with gap funding provided by Erie County’s Affordable Housing Trust fund. Construction for St. Francis Xavier Apartments will begin in the fall of 2008.
