The John H. Bonor Community Center and Englewood Community Development Corporation held a ribbon cutting ceremony for the Commonwealth Apartments on January 14. This team graduated from the IN Supportive Housing Institute in 2009 and met their goal of creating a beautiful 32-unit mixed income development. The Commonwealth Apartments include 10 supportive housing units that are fully furnished.
This development is part of the Super Bowl Legacy Project that began after Indianapolis was selected to host the 2012 Bowl game by the Super Bowl Host Committee. Including (1) Family education, health and fitness; (2) housing development and redevelopment; (3) business and economic development, and infrastructure improvements; and (4) special events and promotions, the Legacy Project has helped the residents of this neighborhood improve their environment and lives. The building that is now the Commonwealth Apartments was once an Indianapolis Public School, and this apartment building includes a full gymnasium, community space, and a rooftop youth sports area.
