Of the 126 units, 26 are public housing, with first priority given to former Montgomery Gardens residents. Ninety-five are available to families earning between 30 to 60 percent of the area’s median income. Five are available at market-rate rents, and seven units are set aside for those formerly homeless.
Mill Creek Garders follows the substantial rehabilitation of a nearby existing 10-story building into the Catherine Todd Senior Living Center, which is the first phase of the larger Montgomery Gardens revitalization effort, consisting of 447 apartments.
The Catherine Todd Senior Living Center, a joint development between Michaels and the Jersey City Housing Authority, consists of 68 one- and two-bedroom apartments reserved for senior residents. The development also offers 3,000 square feet of community and management space. Additional amenities and services include a multipurpose room with kitchen, a computer learning center, a quiet reading room, a media/game room, on-site laundry facilities, outdoor patio space, and social services provided, such as case management, medical screenings and vaccinations, counseling services, resident management opportunities, and access to public transportation.
