Paris High School to Become Affordable Senior Apartments
Laborers’ Home Development Corp., a non-profit affordable housing provider, has plans to redevelop the former Paris High School into senior apartments.  The developer has applied to the Illinois Housing Development Authority and a decision should be made in September on whether they receive the funding they need.  Tiger Senior Apartments will consist of 42 units in a mix of studio, one, and two bedroom apartments.  The project will preserve or restore many original architectural features.  The building will have an on-site management office, gymnasium, auditorium, kitchen and lounges.  The building will be brought up to current accessibility standards and will receive numerous upgrades including masonry restoration, replacement of large, existing windows, complete replacement of fire suppression, mechanical, electrical, and plumbing systems, a new elevator, and energy code related upgrades.  Site amenities will include exterior sitting area with benches and new landscaping.  If approved, the project should begin construction in April 2018 and wrap up by April 2019.

Laborers’ Home Development Corporation (LHDC) was recently recognized as an Affordable Housing Champion at the Illinois Governor's Conference on Affordable Housing, acknowledging its work as a state's partner that made exceptional contributions to affordable housing in 2015.

The Jon Linfield Award was presented to LHDC for Maple Ridge II, a 42-unit apartment community in Paris, Illinois that allows families to live affordably near work. When a local manufacturer, North American Lighting, expanded their facility, Maple Ridge helped to attract new employees.
