FTK Construction Services is pleased to announce the project award for Lennox House Apartments, located at 110 NW 2nd Street, Grand Prairie, Texas 75050. Lennox House is a 9% LIHTC, 40-unit affordable housing property for 62+-year-old seniors, owned and operated by National Church Residences. The value of the contract is $3,387,288. Other project partners are KeyBank as the lender and Alliance Architecture of Indiana.
Lennox House has held a significant position in Grand Prairie history, first opening as the Lennox Hotel in 1951. It was a “hotspot” hotel for a multitude of social gatherings in the City of Grand Prairie through the years, then moving on to house the YMCA and a church. National Church Residences took over the property and renovated it in 1992, thereby providing 40 affordable apartments for senior citizens. Now, National Church Residences is once again renovating the property with FTK as the General Contractor.
FTK will be performing extensive updates, including new roofs, exterior doors, new windows, parking lot re-striping and repairs, new accessible pathways, new property signage, and new property lighting. Interior improvements include new cabinets, countertops, plumbing fixtures, flooring, interior paint, new appliances, and more.
CEO Jim Goodman shared, “We’re very happy to once again be working with National Church Residences on another project. They are a great project partner, and we look forward to delivering outstanding results for the Lennox House project.”
“We are excited to preserve critical affordable housing for seniors in the heart of downtown Grand Prairie,” said Tracey Fine, Director, Housing Development for National Church Residences.
