Aeroterra Senior Village was built on the former Frank Luke Addition public housing site and is the first phase of the HOPE VI revitalization. The single three-story, 60-unit building caters to seniors and persons with disabilities. An array of amenities makes the village a sought after home with features such as accessible unit interiors, elevators, handrails, community space, an exercise and craft room, outdoor courtyard, dog run, laundry facilities, computer and training space and gated access to the community. The community has an on-site team of experts to provide case management, educational programming and other community resources to better serve low-income seniors and residents with disabilities.
Aeroterra Senior Village earned the Enterprise Green Communities designation for its energy efficient and healthy-homes design elements. Green features include a photovoltaic solar system to power the common areas, Energy Star appliances, low-flow water fixtures, low-water landscaping and washable synthetic grass in the courtyard and dog run areas. The total development cost was funded through the Arizona Department of Housing Low Income Housing Tax Credit (LIHTC) Program, Department of Housing and Urban Development HOPE VI Revitalization Grant, construction financing and City General Obligation Bond funds.
