Providence Community Housing announced last week it has completed the renovations to St. Ann Square, an apartment community for low-income seniors in Treme with 59 apartments.
To finance the $17 million project, Providence secured a 9% Low Income Housing Tax Credit from the Louisiana Housing Corporation; federal and state historic tax credits through the National Park Service and the Louisiana Division of Historic Preservation; an $875,000 Community Development Block Grant funds from the City of New Orleans, Office of Community and Economic Development; and a 40-year HUD mortgage through Capital One.
Kimberly Finney Architect LLC was the architect and Milton J. Womack, Inc. was the general contractor. Christopher Homes Inc. is the property manager.
St. Ann Square originally served the neighborhood’s Catholic parishioners in the early 1900s as a church. It was closed in the 1970’s, and subsequently converted into senior apartments in 2000.
In 2017, Providence acquired the property and assembled other nearby structures, which expanded the footprint. Providence then transformed the campus from a three-building, 44-unit affordable senior community into a newly renovated six-building, 59-unit affordable senior community.
