Allen House Groundbreaking

Affordable Housing Alliance
Breaks Ground for Ten Senior Units

Allen House GroundbreakingOn October 23, 2014, the Affordable Housing Alliance (AHA) held the groundbreaking ceremony for Allen House in Millstone Township.

This ten unit senior apartment complex, housing seniors 62 and over, is fully subsidized and located on a four acre, lakeside property. The success of this project is due to collaboration among:

  1. Two Rivers Bank,
  2. The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development,
  3. The Federal Home Loan Bank of NY,
  4. Millstone Township,
  5. NeighborWorks, and
  6. The Affordable Housing Alliance.

Monarch Housing Associates served as the housing consultant for Allen House.

As is the Alliance’s mission, these ten units will be affordable to very low-income individuals. This is the most recent Alliance project to be developed in Monmouth County, adding to the approximately 400 housing units in our portfolio. Allen House will be the Alliance’s second sizable senior project, adding to Carver House in Neptune, NJ. This is the third partnership between the Alliance and the Township of Millstone in the last three years.

Allen House was designed to foster privacy, accessibility, and visitability to meet the physical needs of the elderly as they age in place. The project was designed as a one-story apartment building with on-site community space, and parking.

Exterior amenities include a covered entryway, walking paths, and a pond. The building’s entry will have a secured door with an intercom entry system.

There are a total of 10 one-bedroom apartments. Every apartment will have its own kitchen, bathroom, eating area, living area, and storage space. Units will include Energy Star appliances, wall-to-wall carpet, window blinds, security and emergency call features, and hardwiring for telephone, cable TV, and internet access.
