A new apartment community in South Comlumbus is selecting residents not by how much they make, but by how little.
Avalon Apartments had their official ribbon cutting ceremony Thursday. The complex features one to four bedroom apartments, but residents must meet strict income requirements. Ambling Management owns the community. They say they have worked closely with the federal government to provide tax credit housing, meaning each apartment size has a different cap on total income. Kim Rutledge is the Property Manager at Avalon Apartments, “We have had several applicants come from various parts of town. Yes, they may not qualify somewhere else, but they will qualify here. They are anxious to move in. It’s brand new.”
Dorothy Shield has lived in the community since March. She says it’s ideal because there are “no break-ins, and I enjoy my apartment. I thank God for this place.”
Avalon Management says 50% of the apartments are not rented. The income maximums range from $21,000 to $28,000.
