The Corporation for Independent Living (CIL) recently closed on the sale of the first Capewell Townhomes unit in February. CIL?is a not-for-profit specialist that provides real estate development, construction and management services to state, municipal and other not-for-profit entities.
Built on the grounds of the historic former Capewell Manufacturing Company horseshoe nail factory, the above units are located on Popieluszko Court between Wyllys Street and Charter Oak Avenue in Hartford.
The homes can be purchased by income-eligible homebuyers with prices ranging from $154,000 to $175,000. Each unit has central air conditioning, a full basement and attic, a two-car garage, spacious kitchen and bathrooms and energy-efficient appliances.
CIL is now completing work on the second of four buildings. CIL also was involved in the Mortson/Putnam Heights project in Frog Hollow and the Wyllys Lisbon Cooperative housing in the Sheldon-Charter Oak neighborhood. For nearly 30 years, CIL has completed building projects in Connecticut and Massachusetts including group homes, affordable housing, corporate offices for not-for-profits, as well as factory and brownfield reclamations. Securing 100% financing on behalf of its clients, CIL provides a donation clause at the end of long-term leases to allow organizations to take ownership of a property.
Through its AccesSolutions program, CIL provides equipment and resources, including home and vehicle modifications, for people with physical disabilities and is now accepting applications for home accessibility modifications and repairs from individuals with household incomes at or below the area median with a disabled resident family member.
Modifications are provided at no cost to the family. For more information on CIL visit www.cil.org.
