Affordable and Accessible Apartments Open | Housing
Housing that is both affordable and easily accessible can be difficult to find in southern Nevada. A new apartment complex is filling that gap.
The Park Apartments near Martin Luther King Boulevard and Carey Avenue offer wheelchair-accessible apartments and facilities for a very low price. The complex is loaded with features designed to make getting around easier.
"You can't imagine what its like to be in an electric wheelchair like this and have a bunch of groceries in your lap, and then if you are in a regular place you have to fight the doorway to get into your apartment. Here it is just a touch of a door," resident Phil Ramsey said.
A nonprofit housing company, Accessible Space Inc., will manage the building.
“There are roll-under counter tops, wider doorways - everything is ADA certified," Devin Vandershaaf with Accessible Space said. "In the bathroom, you can roll into the shower: it is wider. Anything to accommodate the needs of somebody who might be in a wheelchair or have mobility impairment."
This is ASI’s 15th affordable housing community in Nevada. Two additional affordable, wheelchair-accessible apartment buildings will be under development in Clark County within the next 18 months.
