Two factors key to the strength of a community are the quality and diversity of its housing stock. For this reason, the City of Canton has devoted large amounts of time and financial resources to projects that create new housing developments or improve existing structures and neighborhoods within city limits.

One of these recent projects involved the construction of a 40,000 square foot, three-story apartment building for senior citizens in downtown Canton.  Partnering with ABCD (Association for Better Community Development) and The NRP Group, this $7 million housing project will house seniors 55 years of age and older who meet specific income guidelines.

Inside the new structure, residents will have the choice of occupying a spacious one or two bedroom apartment with a breakfast bar, living room and their own kitchen. Each floor also provides additional space for meetings and events with an open air-patio that offers great views of the downtown cityscape.

Affordability and safety are two key factors that many seniors consider when choosing a new place to live.  With the recent opening of Wilson Pointe, the City and its partners have provided Canton seniors with a safe, affordable, and beautiful new choice to put down roots as they enjoy their retirement.  With roughly 20 units remaining in the building (out of 40), the time is now to reserve space while it is still available!
