New senior housing community described as a 'cathedral for God's children'

Officials hosted Wednesday morning a grand opening celebration for Patriot Pointe, the city's new public housing complex for senior citizens. The senior community replaces the old Chapman Homes housing area and offers one- and two- bedroom apartments to residents 55 years of age and older. The complex is part of a two-pronged project that includes the demolition of the Booker T. Washington Apartments at Victory Drive and Veterans Parkway and the building of a new public housing complex on the northern end of that land. The southern end, fronting Victory, Veterans, Fifth Street and Sixth Avenue is planned to be used for commercial development.
