[ARCHIVED] New affordable housing complex opens in Downtown Jackson

Albert Kahn Apartments

Downtown Jackson continues to welcome new residents with the opening of the Albert Kahn Apartments earlier this spring. Located on S. Jackson Street between W. Washington Avenue and W. Cortland Street, the Albert Kahn Apartments make use of the former Jackson Citizen Patriot newspaper building, along with a new addition.

The 73-unit complex is named after famous Michigan architect Albert Kahn, who designed the original Citizen Patriot building. This is a affordable housing development from General Capital Group of Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Tenants must earn between $13,000 and $37,000 annually to qualify for the one and two bedroom units. Community Manager Amy Jo Tisdel says they’re excited to offer affordable downtown living. “Our growing wait list really speaks to the need for affordable housing projects in Jackson,” Tisdel said. 

The complex also offers commercial space on the first floor, along with unique live-work units, for business owners who want both a living space and storefront. “We’ve heard from residents that they really love the walkability of the property and being downtown,” Tisdel said. 

More information about these apartments can be found by visiting albertkahnapt.com. Two other downtown apartment developments, The 200 on N. Jackson Street and the Francis Senior Lofts on S. MLK Drive, opened last year.
