Total dollars leveraged: $1,250,000
Senior affordable housing units: 165
Developed by: The Roxbury Group and Invest Detroit
Invest Detroit is committed to one Detroit for all, which includes the preservation of affordable housing. Our investment in Kamper and Stevens helped to promote a diversified mix of housing solutions by preserving and improving one of the last remaining senior affordable housing projects in Detroit’s Central Business District. All 165 units will be leased to seniors at or below 60% of average median income, and with a thoughtful approach to construction, none of the existing residents will be displaced.
Mr. Hutchinson, a resident of Kamper and Stevens, said, “I’m happy to be living here and to see all the improvements to the building–I have a new kitchen, new bathroom, and freshly painted walls. Thank you Invest Detroit and everyone who helped. I truly appreciate that I can walk to parks, visit with people, and watch outdoor movies in the summer. With the buses and QLINE, I shop when and where I want and travel to the churches and organizations where I volunteer.”
