Lexington Commons

Adaptive Reuse/Supportive Housing

Lexington Commons provides 48 efficiency apartments designed for single adults who have experienced significant periods of homelessness. Rent is income-based, and residents are offered Supportive Housing services, which is one aspect of our Advantage Services programs. This typically includes our most intensive case management for people with serious barriers to meeting their life goals.

 

CommonBond’s development of Lexington Commons has transformed this abandoned nursing home facility into permanent homes and a supportive, sober community for 48 people. The project was designed to reuse the building structure and exterior brick, and to upgrade building systems, improve health and wellness of residents, and minimize environmental impact.

Financing Tools

Lexington’s primary funding source is federal stimulus funds administered through Minnesota Housing for a total of $8 million. The development is one of the first in Minnesota to receive federal stimulus funds for affordable housing.
