The Magnolia at 9th Senior Apartments is a public, private non-profit partnership of The City of San Bernardino, Western Community Housing, Inc. and Meta Housing, Corp., professionally managed by Western Seniors Housing.
Magnolia at 9th is located in San Bernardino near the corner of 9th and Lugo Street. Open since February, the apartments provide seniors age 62 and older with an upscale and affordable living option. The apartments include 100 one-bedroom units, and 19 two bedrooms apartments, a pool, garden, workout room and large community room.
“Partnerships such as the one the city had with Meta Housing are critical for keeping our city an attractive place to live,” said San Bernardino First Ward Council Member Marquez said. “This project was very near and dear to me, because it was the last one before the redevelopment agency folded up. It was very touch-and-go for a while, but we persevered and now have this wonderful place for our seniors to live.”
“We are thrilled to be able to offer beautiful, quality, affordable housing designed for seniors age 62+, with many amenities,” said Anthony Sandoval, President of Western Seniors Housing, about the comforts and tranquil living conditions that the community has to offer.
The $21 million project also comes with exceptional programs for seniors and a sustainable design using “green building” principles designed to exceed existing energy efficiency by more than one-third. The City of San Bernardino is a partner in the project contributing $7.1 million from redevelopment funds that could only be used for low-income housing.
“We also partner with an organization like EngAGE, to provide programs for seniors that help seniors maintain a healthier and happier lifestyle. Providing seniors with opportunities to stay connected and active is essential,” said Meta Housing Corp. Vice President Aaron Mandel.
“We are thrilled to be able to deliver this beautiful senior housing project to San Bernardino,” said Mandel. “About 50 seniors have moved is and are enjoying their apartments.”
“Overall, above and beyond the technology, amenities and structure itself, seniors will find a great place they can come to call home and their families can rest assured that their parents, grandparents, aunts and uncles are enjoying their senior years in comfort and good company,” said Mandel.
