Lindley Court holds meet and greet for local Olney community

January 19, 2017

Presby’s newest Affordable Housing community welcomed neighbors and potential residents for a tour and information session.

The local Olney community came out Wednesday afternoon for a meet and greet at Lindley Court, a new Presby’s Inspired Life-managed Affordable Housing community at 1300 West Lindley Avenue in Philadelphia.

Lindley Court features 48 units of tax credit Affordable Housing for older adults aged 62 and older.

Lindley Court also features a community room, computer lab and adjacent commercial medical offices that will be available to all residents.

Community members were welcomed on Wednesday to sit in on a presentation about Lindley Court, enjoy a provided lunch and then take a tour of the building and its spacious new apartments.

“Events like this meet and greet are important for the surrounding community,” said Keith Caldwell, Presby’s Inspired Life’s Assistant Director of Housing.

“They’ve been here from the start of this to the finish of this. They’ve been inquisitive about this the entire time, which is a good thing. This is our chance to let them know who we are and what we do, all while saying thank you.”

The applications for Lindley Court have been coming in for months now and residents started moving in dating back to Dec. 30. There are seven units currently filled while 35 more potential residents have been approved to move in. All the units are scheduled to be filled by mid-February.

Sarah McCloud, originally of South Philadelphia, officially moved in on Jan. 13.

“I had been thinking about moving to an older adult community for a little bit now,” Sarah said. “My daughter worked nearby here and when I came and saw the building for the first time, I just had to put in an application. Now I’m here!

“Everyone has been so helpful and patient. It’s been beautiful!”

What would Sarah say to someone who is thinking of moving into Lindley Court?

“They won’t be disappointed. This is fabulous!”
