FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WOWO): The Fort Wayne Housing Authority is joining with the developer of a big housing project for the south side of Fort Wayne.

The Indiana Housing and Community Development Authority has given the FWHA more than $882,000 in Low Income Housing Tax Credit and another $500,000 from the state’s Developmental Fund to help support the construction of Posterity Village, which is the third phase of the Posterity Heights project at the former McMillan Park Apartments. The FWHA will be partnering with the project’s developers, BWI LLC, as a result.

The project will feature lease-to-own homes and housing solutions for families dealing with intellectual or developmental disabilities.

The partnership will also include support from Joshua’s Hand who will serve as a community connector, identifying potential residents and services that will enhance the quality of life for residents. Upon completion, Posterity Village will consist of 58-unit development using a creative construction mixture of duplexes, cubes, brownstones, and cottage style one and two-story single-family homes.

The development will feature a sustainable design concept and provide services geared toward continued education, health & wellness, and job training for all residents. Residents will have access to an onsite primary health clinic, cash-less grocery store, restaurants, and the University Life Development Center dedicated to Ivy Tech and Indiana Tech where residents wishing to pursue higher education or certifications will have access to classes and free workshops.

Construction on Posterity Village begins next spring.
