COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT CORPORATION
The Ujima Project
Proposed New Language
The Ujima Community Development Corporation has completed the predevelopment phase for its first project --- a fifty (50) unit senior housing and retirement community comprised of a two-story multi-family structure containing twenty-eight (28) units, eleven duplex structures containing twenty-two (22) units, and a community center for the use of the complex’s residents and surrounding community. When completed the new development is expected to be comprised of seniors from the City and region that are seeking to either downsize their current residential situation or who are looking to find affordable supportive housing as they move toward retirement from full-time employment. Many may be retirees (or soon-to-be retirees) from Winston-Salem State University or other area institutions, and though not ready for assisted living, would like to move into an environment that is open, welcoming, and supportive of their personal and social needs/interests.
The complex’s services and amenities will include the standard amenities and general maintenance provided in many of today’s better independent living facilities, such as fully-equipped kitchens featuring dishwasher, range/microwave, garbage disposal, storage area, and refrigerator; washer and dryer hook-ups, generous closets; wall-to-wall carpeting; window coverings; fire sprinkler and alarm system; individually controlled heating and air-conditioning. The CDC will also promote “green” construction design and energy saving features in the project whenever possible.
