Antioch Manor is a 64 unit affordable senior rental project located at the corner of 7th Street and Ferry Avenue, in the Centerville section of the City of Camden, NJ on what was seven abandoned row homes (one house was occupied by squatters and two were being used as drug havens) and a large tract owned by the Camden Redevelopment Agency. Construction on the project began in the winter of 2003 and was completed during the winter of 2004. The development consists of 64 one and two-bedroom apartments within a three story mid-rise building along with 32 off street parking spaces and a medical facility operated by CAMcare. The building also contains the leasing/management office, maintenance shop, laundry facilities and a meeting room. Antioch Manor designated 100% of its units for households at least 55 years in age or older. Incomes of the residents are restricted to those who earn no more than 50% of the Camden County median.
Financing of this project was provided through a combination of equity from the syndication of Low Income Housing Tax Credits from the New Jersey Housing and Mortgage Finance Agency, the New Jersey Department of Community Affairs’ Balanced Housing Program and the Federal Home Loan Bank of NY.
