City Supports Downtown Apartment Project

KSAL Staff - February 2, 2015 6:10 pm

Salina City Commisssioners give their support to a project that would bring around 50 apartments to Downtown Salina.

Flint Hills Holdings Group is seeking tax credits for the project. As part of the process, a resolution of support is needed.

The project includes a minimum 48 unit housing project on behalf of Mike Forristal of the Lee Building, and Flint Hills Holdings Company as the developers and new potential owners of the Lee Building.

Flint Hills Holdings Group specializes in innovative real estate development using a variety of unique financing options. Successfully completing numerous tax credit allocations and awards, Flint Hills Holdings Group has served as owner/developer as well as consultant on numerous projects. They have also developed a brokerage aspect for projects which help sellers maximize their profits.

Some city¬†commissioners¬†and staff toured several of the company’s projects in Lawrence last week.

So is it going to be low income housing? Everyone knows with in a few years it becomes slum housing and would be the final nail in the downtown coffin.

Hopefully something positive can come to these now empty buildings. Would be nice to see.

I see no mention of it being low income housing. Keep in mind that many of the living quarters that have been remodeled over a lot of the downtown businesses are very nice and certainly not low income. I saw one that was listed for rent about a year ago for $1600.00 a month. I’d say that hardly qualifies as low income.

Hopefully you are correct but with this group of commissioners you never know. Look how long Gypsum avenue bridge has gone unfixed which is a main street to get into and out of the Bi-center the 13 million dollar remake. That bridge should have been replaced years ago and still remains closed. I wonder if it were the Iron St. bridge would they ignor it to?
