Clark County, Nevada HAND and the Southern Nevada Regional Housing Authority celebrated the grand opening of the Rose Gardens Apartment Homes Friday.
Rose Gardens is an income- and age-restricted property, serving low-income seniors over the
age of 55. The new apartment community features 120 one- and two-bedroom apartment units
and a variety of community spaces to inspire a sense of neighborhood. Amenities include
outdoor patio spaces, library, community room with kitchen, music room, fitness areas, a
billiards room and dog park. An on-site resident services coordinator assists residents with
everything from benefit sign-ups to social events.
Rose Gardens began welcoming residents of the 43-year old Rose Gardens apartments, located
just across the street from the new property, last month. The replacement of Rose Gardens with a new building is made possible through HUD's Rental Assistance Demonstration (RAD) program which allows housing authorities to leverage private capital in public-private partnerships to address distressed housing such as Rose Gardens and addressing an unmet need in our communities.
Clark County contributed $1 million in HOME Investment Partnerships Program (HOME) funds to the project.
The grand opening event featured remarks by Clark County Commissioner Lawrence Weekly, who represents the area, leaders from Nevada HAND, the Southern Nevada Regional Housing Authority and a resident of the community. Rose Gardens is located at 1731 Yale St. in North Las Vegas.
