Low-Income Senior Housing Coming to Downtown Tucson

The vacant, deteriorating building that once housed Marist College on  West Ochoa Street and South Church Avenue in downtown Tucson is the largest and oldest adobe structure in the state, and the building soon will be renovated and re-purposed into eight apartments for low-income seniors.

The Rio Nuevo board voted this week to invest $350,000 into the Foundation for Senior Living’s (FSL) restoration project. The project also includes 75 more apartments in a new seven-story building nearby that would replace the existing Tucson Catholic Diocese offices at Broadway and Church.
