A new affordable housing complex for seniors in Charlottesville is now finished and ready for people to move in. The Jefferson Area Board for Aging (JABA) hosted a ribbon-cutting for Timberlake Place Wednesday morning.

Timberlake Place is located on East Market Street, in the Woolen Mills neighborhood. There are 26 units of low-to-moderate income, senior housing. All the homes are ground-floor accessible, and five units are ADA compliant.

Daniel Meeks grew up in a house on the property, and has just moved back there into a new, affordable unit.

"I think it's wonderful. It's absolutely the same view that I had as a child. I can see Brown's Mountain, Carter's Mountain and Monticello Mountain. It's great. It's like I've gone full circle and I'm back home," said Meeks. 

JABA says the largest benefit is that the neighborhood is easily accessible to downtown Charlottesville, and the JAUNT buses.
