Milner Commons will include 156 apartments for seniorsĀ  (10 efficiencies, 122 one-bedroom/one-bath units, 24 two-bedroom/one bath) in two residential buildings. Milner Commons will serve those at or below 60% area median income. The community will feature covered walkways, common laundry facilities along with laundry hook-ups in each unit, computer centers for residents, community gathering rooms with kitchen, tenant storage areas, fitness rooms, indoor and outdoor sitting areas, patio/porches, and an on-site management office in both buildings.
