Nora Gardens

  • When we stopped by to inquire, I was so impressed. It was so clean and the decor was pleasant to look at. The color scheme was beautiful. The view was breathtaking. This was the location I wanted to call my home. I have lived here for over a year and have no regrets.

  • I enjoy being here. There are lots of activities I can participate in, which gives me a chance to meet new friends and new families. Everybody’s birthday is remembered.

About the Property

Building Type: Four-Story Mid Rise

Opened in 1999 and designed for seniors, Nora Gardens is often compared to a boutique hotel thanks to its attentive on-site staff and special amenities not seen in many affordable properties, such as a business center on every floor. Nora Gardens consists of 100 rental units, including one bedroom and one bedroom “barrier-free” apartments. Nora Gardens is more than just an apartment complex—it is a “NAHMA Community of Quality”— a member of an elite group of properties which meet rigorous national standards in physical maintenance, financial management, programs and services, employee credentials and other criteria. This property is among the country’s top affordable properties and is run like a small hotel, with well-appointed indoor and outdoor common spaces, planned resident activities and special events, transportation options, off-street parking, security and an on-site management team dedicated to the property.


Ideal For

Nora Gardens offers federally assisted housing for persons 62 years or older. Residents must qualify under the income limits set by the US Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), and the occupancy policy established by the sponsor. Monthly rent is based upon the resident’s income in a formula specified by HUD.
