Farmington’s first senior housing complex begins to fill
Grand opening planned this fall
Residents have started to move into the first senior housing development in Farmington’s Vermillion River Crossing, and the 66-unit complex is expected to be full by August.
Two weeks ago, the first occupants began moving in, and the second phase of move-ins will be June 19, said Sara Swenson, spokesperson for project developer, the Dakota County Community Development Agency.
“We’re doing a phased move-in process for the building, so everyone is not trying to get moved in all at once,” Swenson said.
She said 51 of the units are committed, but encouraged people who may be interested to continue submitting applications, because sometimes people who have applied and were accepted are unable to move in because they encounter problems selling their home or other situations arise.
The complex includes one- and two-bedroom fixed-rate units that cost $566 and $691 per month, respectively. There are also six market-rate two-bedroom units in the complex that cost $900 per month.
A public open house and building dedication ceremony will be held in early October.
