Construction on Downtown Elderly Housing to Begin Next Week

Work will begin next week on a new 34-unit affordable housing complex for the
elderly on the Presumpscot River. Spring Crossing, to be located at 19 Ash St.,
will be the first project built by the Westbrook Housing Authority since 2003.
The $3.3 million project addresses a strong demand for elderly housing. Spring
Crossing will feature 31 one-bedroom and three two-bedroom apartments for people
aged 55 and older. Three of the apartments will be handicapped-accessible, and
the remainder will be designed to be easily adaptable for handicapped residents.
