Cornelius Place brings 45 apartment homes for low-income seniors along with a new public library to Cornelius, Oregon.
BRIDGE is partnering with Bienstar, Inc. and the City of Cornelius to develop Cornelius Place, a mixed-use development located near city services and amenities.The residential component of Cornelius Place will include two floors of studio, one- and two-bedroom apartments for adults age 55+ with household incomes of up to 50-60 percent of Area Median Income (AMI). Additionally, 11 of the households will utilize project-based Section 8 vouchers, thereby allowing the project to target even deeper affordability with those residents paying no more than 30% of their income in rent.
