The Christ the King Senior Housing project involved construction of an elderly housing facility at 44th and Broadway, on land owned by the Archdiocese of Louisville. This facility provides 24 one-bedroom apartment units, all handicapped accessible.
The project site is adjacent Christ the King Catholic Church, in an established residential neighbor-hood.
Prepared by the team of Watrous Associates Architects, and Arrasmith, Judd, Rapp, Inc. the three story design is intended to harmonize with the architectural appearance of surrounding buildings of the neighborhood and the Christ The King campus.
A committee of the Christ the King Parish was very involved in development of the project, and the parish has committed to providing extensive supportive services for the elderly.
The Housing Partnership Inc. and Catholic Charities of Louisville, Inc. were the developers of the project.
