Abstract

Aging housing stock and declines in federal and state subsidies has limited the number of new or renovated senior housing units that can be built. Augusta is converting two school buildings, the Cony Flatiron building which housed the former high school and the Hodgkins Junior High school building. The article addresses the challenges each project faced, funding, rental rates and current amenities of the buildings. [photo]
