Thurgood Marshall Senior Apartments
Our collaborative partnership is fulfilling a need for affordable senior housing with supportive services in Toledo with the Thurgood Marshall Senior Apartments. The proposed development is an adaptive reuse of the historic Thurgood Marshall building, a former Toledo Public Schools elementary.
When reactivating a vacant space in a community rallying for change, becoming a good neighbor and positive ally is the most essential aspect of the project in the eyes of the community. Community Building Partners‘ alignment with the Area Office on Aging, NeighborWorks Toledo Region, and Lucas Metropolitan Housing Authority is creating a partnership dedicated to and already working in the North End neighborhood in Toledo.
Thurgood Marshall Senior Apartments will fulfill a need for high-quality housing for the underserved and vulnerable senior population in Toledo and Lucas County. 86 units of affordable senior housing are planned, preserving the historic building formerly known as Webster Elementary, which was built in 1922 and has been the home of Toledo Public School administrators since the 1960s. The project also calls for the creation of a second annex building, which will compliment the surrounding neighborhood.
