Local Senior Housing Development Wins State Affordable Housing Award

Congratulations Thrive Alliance and Crossroads Senior Apartments on receiving the 2022 Excellence in Affordable Housing Award.

The awards are presented by the lieutenant governor through the Indiana Housing and Community Development Authority to the most outstanding new properties in four categories and celebrate the best in Indiana affordable housing.

Crossroads Senior Apartments is a $12.5 million, 64-unit affordable apartment complex at 500 S. Poplar St. in Seymour.

“We are excited to receive this recognition from the lieutenant governor,” said Mark Lindenlaub, Thrive Alliance executive director. “Crossroads represents our vision for the future of affordable senior housing, offering not just a place to live but an environment plus services to support people who want to live longer, healthier lives.”

Since opening earlier this year, Crossroads has received positive reaction from residents, the overall Seymour community and local government leaders, he said.

“This really was a total team effort between Thrive Alliance, our contracting partners and the local community,” Lindenlaub said. “We had some obstacles along the way taking on such a major project during the pandemic, but the final results exceeded our expectations.”

Jacob Sipe, executive director of the housing authority, said the housing authority couldn’t support its mission without its network of incredible housing partners.

“Mark (Lindenlaub) is a leader in this industry, and he has a great team working hard to keep housing affordable for Hoosiers,” Sipe said. “We look forward to continued success in Seymour and our growing partnership with Thrive Alliance.”

Seymour Mayor Matt Nicholson said he enjoyed being able to watch the development of Crossroads Senior Apartments, first as a city council member when Thrive Alliance initially asked the city to be involved in this project to the end product.

“The transformation of this property from a vacant, contaminated field to a beautiful and thriving senior living community has met a great need in Seymour for senior housing and sparked a valued partnership with Thrive Alliance in addressing our current and future needs for our senior population,” Nicholson said. “We as a city are grateful for the work Thrive has accomplished in Seymour and are excited to see they are being recognized at the state level for this project.“
