Take a virtual tour of the complex
Members of the community, residents, management and state officials gathered Friday at Kingwood Arms Apartment high rise for a ribbon cutting ceremony to commemorate the end of a $6 million renovation for the 97-unit affordable rental housing community for seniors and adults with disabilities.
Longtime resident Pat Gardiner represented the residents during the ceremony. She spoke and participated in the ribbon cutting.
"I've been here well over 20 years. Most of you don't know that I worked here for almost 18," Gardiner said.
She was first in security before transferring to resident resources.
"I feel like I have a very big investment in this building and the people here whom I love," she said.
"We desperately needed these renovations and want to thank you very much," she said addressing LHP, the company that purchased the property in 2014.
The building was built in 1981 by the Christian Housing Group as an affordable housing option for low income elderly and disabled people.
