Jefferson Oaks will feature the adaptive reuse of the vacant Thomas Jefferson School building, including 20 one- and two-bedroom apartments and community space. The community will also include an additional 40 three- and four-bedroom townhome-style units. Twenty one of the units will be set aside for supportive housing with project-based rental assistance.
Jefferson Oaks will be a mixed-income community designed of high quality residential homes built and maintained to be appealing and affordable for hard-working families and individuals. The total development cost is $17.6 million and will be our largest development to date.
Renovation of the school and construction are currently ongoing. Lease up is expected to be during the spring of 2018.
