Holland, Ohio, November 29, 2022 – John Arthur Flats located in Cincinnati, Ohio is the first LGBTQ+ friendly 55+ affordable senior housing community in the city of Cincinnati. The modern building contains 57 units offering studio, and 1- and 2-bedroom apartments. The Douglas Company was selected as the general contractor for the $9.4 million development. This is the second project working with developer, Pennrose, LLC.
New Republic Architecture created a unique design with charcoal metal panels and a custom brick blend for the exterior. The 50,000-square-foot space consists of a 3-story building with elevator service. Impressive amenities include a fitness center, large community room, wellness center, on-site laundry room, a dog park, and an outdoor terrace. On-site social and medical services geared toward LGBTQ+ needs are also available to residents.
“We are proud to be part of this collaboration with the Northside’s development arm, Northsiders Engaged in Sustainable Transformation (NEST), and developer, Pennrose, to bring this innovative community to life in Cincinnati,” said Tyler Stout, project manager at The Douglas Company. “The John Arthur Flats complex not only provides an affordable option to seniors but much-needed customized services to the LGBTQ+ community.”
