CHARLOTTE — Two affordable, environmentally friendly apartment buildings for older renters are scheduled to open in mid-April, one billed as the first LEED-certified complex in the state for low-income tenants.
Cherry Gardens Senior Apartments, in Charlotte’s Cherry neighborhood, and Curlin Commons in Mooresville will be open to people 55 and older. Tenants will pay rental rates based on their incomes.
Green and affordable are two housing terms that typically don’t go together, but partners in the projects say decreased construction costs helped make that possible in one case, private grant money in the other.
Affordable Housing Group, a Charlotte nonprofit that works with other organizations to develop affordable homes in the Carolinas, partnered with Living Gardens LLC on the Cherry project, and with the Catholic Diocese of Charlotte Housing Corporation on the Mooresville complex.
