INDIANAPOLIS — TWG has opened Line Lofts Apartments, a new affordable senior living development on the eastside of Indianapolis.
The property features 63 two-bedroom units. One-fifth of the units are designed and reserved for seniors with visual impairments, as part of a partnership between TWG and local nonprofit Visually Impaired Preschool Services (VIPS), which provides ongoing early intervention services to Indiana’s children with blindness/low vision.
As part of the partnership, the $11 million property will include specific features that will aid visually impaired residents, including oversized elevator buttons, tactile markings and dedicated ride sharing pickup spots, as well as a park area and washing station for service animals. The complex sits next to the future Blue Line Rapid Transit corridor, allowing senior residents with visual impairments to easily travel throughout downtown Indianapolis.
Line Lofts will also serve as the 6,000-square-foot new home for the VIPS Simon and Estelle Knoble Family Resource Center, which will serve children with vision impairment.
The project was made possible with low income housing tax credits (LIHTC) from the Indiana Housing and Community Development Authority (IHCDA).
