New Affordable Senior Housing Opens in Semmes

Posted on: Nov 2nd, 2023 | News and AnnouncementsPress Releases

MOBILE COUNTY, Ala. – Through a public/private partnership, the new 56-unit Legacy Trail affordable senior apartment community opened in Semmes, Alabama on Thursday, Nov. 2.


Legacy Trail was built using a combination of Mobile County Commission’s HOME funds awarded by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, state tax credits, state HOME funds, and private investment by Olympia Management.


Residents must meet age (55+) and income requirements to live in Legacy Trail apartments, which have a lower-than-average market rent. Programmatic rent caps ensure continued affordability for years to come. Legacy Trail offers one-, two- or three-bedroom units.


Commissioner Connie Hudson, who represents District 2 said: “The Mobile County Commission understands that affordable housing is a priority, and this public/private partnership should help meet a clear need in a great location. Semmes is quickly elevating its quality-of-life infrastructure and it’s such a delightful, growing community with a vibrant senior center. Legacy Trail is a good addition that should help Semmes become even more attractive to seniors.”


"Seniors are our history keepers. We welcome all new Legacy Trail residents to our community”, said Semmes Mayor Brandon Van Hook.
