72-unit apartment complex now open on Mendel
By Linda Green

Rollingwood Place Apartments, a 72-unit multi-family community, has opened at 500 Mendel Ave. in Thomson.
A new apartment complex that could be a response to Thomson-McDuffie’s lack of affordable housing has opened and is leasing.
Rollingwood Place Apartments is a multi-family housing community at 500 Mendel Avenue in Thomson. The two-story residential buildings were constructed to provide low income, affordable and market-rate apartments to the Thomson-McDuffie community. The 72-unit complex was built to afford those who make $8 an hour or less or those on disability to have the opportunity to get a new home with all of the amenities, said Kiara Hall, the property manager.
“We are an affordable community. What we are presenting is an opportunity for people who work hard everyday, who don’t make a large amount of money to be able to get a wonderful, brand new home with all of the same amenities as a conventional property,” Hall said. “We offer the opportunity to have the same thing every one else has. It allows a person who makes $8 or $9 an hour get a beautiful new home for their family. We want people to know that we are here to serve the community,” she said. Hall also emphasized that people receiving SSI disability may find a home at Rollingwood Place.
According to the apartment application, household income limits range from $26,040 for one person to six-person income at $43,200. The rental rates for a one bedroom-one bath, at 738 square-feet, range from $446-$469; two-bedroom-two bath, at 971 square-feet, range from $517-$550; three bedroom-two bath, at 1251 square-feet, ranges from $585-$624. All have washer/dryer connections.
“We follow fair housing here. We are 100 percent equal opportunity,” Hall said. “We take applications from anyone as long as qualifications are met. Any person, any family can apply. We are ready to give someone a great home. We want to give individuals and families an amazing place to stay.”
