LEADS Grand Reopening Celebration of Windsor Heights Apartments

LEADS held a Grand Re-opening celebration of Windsor Height Apartments in New Lexington, Ohio on October 18, 2013. The residents along with all the partners involved in the remodel were able to attend the celebration. Windsor Heights Apartment underwent an extensive rehabilitation due to being awarded funding through the Ohio Housing Finance Agency 2010 Housing Tax Credit Program. This allowed LEADS to update the kitchens/bathrooms, new windows, roof replacement, vinyl siding, add additional space in the community room and provide a new patio seating area for the residents to enjoy the outdoor scenery s urrounding the property.

Funds have been provided by The Federal Home Loan Bank through the Affordable Housing Program and Ohio Capital Finance Corporation. The construction loan was financed by Park National Bank and Fairfield Homes, Inc. was the construction contractor.  Wallick Companies provides the property management.  Windsor Heights is a 25 unit senior property.   The total cost of the rehabilitation which was completed in early October of 2013 was $3,917,783.00.  Since 1990, LEADS Community Action Agency has developed 38 affordable housing projects in 21 counties in Ohio with a total of 1,309 apartments and single family homes.
