Village of St. John Groundbreaking

Cinnaire recently joined our partners from the Ministry of Caring, Inc., Mayor Mike Purzycki, Delaware State Housing Authority (DSHA) Director Anas Ben Addi, Senator Harris B. McDowell, Representative Charles Potter, local officials and community leaders to celebrate the start of construction for the Village of St. John. Located on Market Street in Wilmington, DE, the Village of St. John will provide one- and two-bedroom apartments for low- and moderate-income seniors.

Developed by the Ministry of Caring, Inc., the Village of St. John consists of the adaptive reuse of the historic Cathedral of St. John and School into a senior living community in Wilmington’s old Brandywine Village. The project will renovate the historic Cathedral into twelve apartments and over 8,000 square feet of community space, rehabilitate the historic Bishop’s house into five reconfigured apartments and construct a new addition with 36 apartments. The Village of St. John will substantially improve the neighborhood, creating a healthy, vibrant community for seniors to call home. Cinnaire provided a Low Income Housing Tax Credit (LIHTC) investment to support the project.
