Mount Hermon Apartments, an affordable senior housing project is now underway in the Fort Lauderdale municipality of Broward county, Florida. Housing Trust Group (HTG) and Mount Hermon African Methodist Episcopal Church have formed a partnership to build the seven-story property.
According to HTG’s president, Matthew Rieger there has been a nationwide demand for age-restricted facilities in recent times. He pointed out that this increased demand was fueled mostly by economic and demographic trends. Therefore, the company expects the Mount Hermon Apartments to help meet the need for affordable residential options in Broward County.

However, some of the apartments will be designated for individuals from ages 62 and above. While the rest of the units will be reserved for earners at or below 25 and 60% of the area median income. The rent will range from $425 to $1,225 monthly.
Mount Hermon Apartments will feature common area amenities, such as a swimming pool, fitness center, clubroom, and outdoor gathering space. Additionally, residents will enjoy access to 24-hour assistance service, adult literacy training, and a resident assurance check-in program.
