Fairbrooke Senior Apartments, a 122-unit, elevator-equipped, affordable housing complex for the elderly, is currently under construction in Aberdeen.
The one- and two-bedroom units in Harford County are expected to be ready for occupancy by next summer. Rents will range from $440 to $490 per month.
The four-story, $8.3 million complex is being built on 7.5 acres fronting a natural park area of woods and streams. Two shopping centers are within walking distance.
Constructed of brick, stucco and vinyl siding, the building will have a "modern Victorian" design. Some units will have balconies or patios.
Building features include handicapped accessibility, a 24-hour emergency call system in each unit, individual heating and air conditioning controls, an automatic sprinkler system, an indoor greenhouse, central laundry facilities and meeting and party rooms.
James W. Miller Inc. of Pikesville is the general contractor for the project, which is being developed by the Waterford Group Inc. of Baltimore.
The architect is Lawrence A. Menefee Architects Inc. in the city.
Financing is being provided by First Union Corp. of Charlotte, and the Community Development Administration of the Maryland State Department of Housing and Community Development.
