County Officials Celebrate Opening of Senior Rental Housing in Germantown (Video & Photos)

Montgomery County Executive Ike Leggett was joined by Montgomery County Councilmember Craig Rice and other county leaders for a ribbon-cutting ceremony to celebrate the opening of Churchill Senior Living, Phase II in Germantown.

In this MyMCMedia Extra video, Councilmember Rice talks about the importance of expanding this facility for senior residents:

The new facility is a mixed-income six-story apartment building with 134 units for seniors age 62 or older. Of those, 121 units are affordable housing and 13 are rented at market-rate.

“One of our fastest rising populations in Montgomery County is the senior population,” said County Councilmember Craig Rice. “A lot of them need different choices on where they want to live. Some are going to age in place but others are going to want to downsize and they’re going to want to have places like this.”

Churchill Senior Living, Phase II was constructed at a total cost of $20 million. Financing included $17.1 million in Housing Opportunities Commission bonds and Montgomery County loans totaling $3.1 million.

Due to the financing methods used, all but 13 of the 134 units are available at reduced rents for persons who are age 62 and older and have income less than 60 percent, or 50 percent, of area median income

Churchill Senior Living, Phase II includes 30 one-bedroom units and 104 two-bedroom units as well as several community rooms, a wellness center, an exercise room, and a home theater.
