Cedars Village on Ellsworth now moving residents in

The senior-living development next to the Italian Market, Cedars Village on Ellsworth near 9th, is finished and residents began moving in this month.

The affordable-housing complex, developed by St. Maron’s CDC, an arm of the little Lebanese Catholic Church at 10th and Ellsworth, built 64 units on the 22,000-square-foot lot, plus 25 parking spaces and a community garden.

The mass of the building is almost hidden when you're walking toward it on Ellsworth from the market.

A woman with the listing agent said the building is already 75 percent occupied and that they’re processing applications for all the other units.

The building also boasts some impressive green credentials, like 100 percent stormwater retention on site, meaning no rainwater runs off the parking lot or roof into the sewers. There’s a green roof on the top of the third floor of the building, which rises to five stories as it backs up to a Washington Avenue parking lot.
