Senior citizens in Edmond will soon have more options when it comes to housing. There are currently no nursing homes or assisted living communities in the city, but Mon Abri, a proposed housing plan, would introduce an 87-unit housing development, including duplexes and offices for rent.
Mon Abri is being proposed by R.W. Development and will be located along Broadway and Covell Road. The plan proposes 87 units of duplexes and triplexes and up to five office building units. About 10.18 acres will be allocated to the housing units, while 1.59 acres will belong to the office buildings.
The Edmond Planning Commission has already approved the preliminary plan for Mon Abri with a vote of 4-1. Chairman Barry Moore disapproved of the plan due to the fencing issue brought about by the residents of Rock Hollow, a neighboring community.
According to R. W. Development, Mon Abri is ideal for seniors age 55 and above, but there will be no restrictions on the age of interested renters. Units up to five bedrooms will be available for rent with prices ranging from $850 – $2,000 per month.
A 18,000-square foot office building is planned for construction in front of the property, and there will be four more built in front of the Boulevard.
