There will be no shortage of war stories at a new independent living facility for senior citizens.
That’s because Haley Parks, being built near the James A. Haley Veterans Hospital by Tampa-based New Vision Communities, is designed for veterans.
“We are excited to bring this development to the USF area to not only serve our elderly Veterans, but also to bring $10 million in economic investment as well as much needed job creation.” NVC Managing Partner Jim Dyal said in a media release.
The development will be located at the southeast corner of 15th Street and 131st Avenue, just west of the James A. Haley Veterans Hospital. The project’s close proximity to the Veterans Hospital will allow residents to take advantage of the many programs and medical services offered by the hospital.
According to the release:
The project will consist of approximately 70 one-and-two-bedroom units within one building, and include such amenities as a pool, fitness center, computer center, theater, hair salon, and library. Additionally, the building will feature state-of-the-art secured entrances and emergency call systems. Further, the development will utilize energy and cost saving features such as Energy Star appliances, insulated and tinted double-pane windows, dual-flush toilets, ceiling fans, and programmable thermostats.
The monthly rents at Haley Park will start at $450 for a one-bedroom and $540 for a two-bedroom unit and will include a washer and dryer in each unit. Also included in the rent is trash collection,
The development is being financed via the Neighborhood Stabilization Program (NSP), as well as tax-exempt bonds, and low-income housing tax credits. NSP is a program funded by the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) and administered locally by Hillsborough County. It is intended to re-develop vacant or foreclosed properties in targeted low-income areas.
