Groundbreaking for 102-unit Affordable Housing Complex for Seniors in Londonderry

The groundbreaking ceremony for Londonderry’s new Sanborn Crossing Apartments, a new 102-unit, age-restricted apartment complex, was held December 7th at 30 Sanborn Road. Each of the two 4-story buildings will have 51 units, with a total of 62 one-bedroom, and 40 two-bedroom units. The units will be affordable to senior households under 60% of the area median income. Sanborn Crossing utilizes green building technology and low-impact development methods, as well as cutting-edge stormwater management. Landscaping will include native plants, a walking trail system, rain gardens, and bio-retention basins for groundwater recharging. Financing for the project is through New Hampshire Housing Finance Authority, using tax-exempt bonds to provide primary loan financing, the Low Income Housing Tax Credit (LIHTC) program, and a development subsidy through the federal HOME Program. The LIHTC program leverages private investment capital directed at affordable rental housing.
