Groundbreaking for Lutheran Senior Services Dunn Road Manor Expansion

Lutheran Senior Services (LSS) broke ground today on the $5.8 million construction of 36 new affordable housing apartments at its 62-unit Dunn Road Manor affordable living community at 3399 Dunn Road in Florissant. The new apartments will be located in a new wing added to the existing building that provides direct access to a variety of health-related and social services including a shared commercial kitchen, computer lab with internet access, library, parish nurse, chaplaincy services, multipurpose room and a unique tele-health kiosk already enjoyed by current Dunn Road Manor residents. When completed, Dunn Road Manor will provide independent living for 98 residents with an average age of 78 and average annual income of $11,000.

The project will utilize the Low-Income Housing Tax Credits (LIHTC) offered by the Missouri Housing Development Commission. In 2012, LSS opened its first LIHTC project at the Village at Mackenzie Place in Affton. LSS currently provides decent, safe and affordable housing to nearly 800 very low-income older adults in the St. Louis area as part of its mission to help older adults live life to the fullest.
