LAS VEGAS, NV – Arioso, a 195-unit affordable rental community for low-income seniors in southwest Las Vegas, recently held its grand opening celebration, and the developer – Ovation Design & Development – said that more accommodations catering to low-income residents are vitally needed as rents continue to climb throughout Southern Nevada and the nation.
Ovation founder Alan Molasky said that as affordable rental options continue to shrink for local residents – especially seniors, many of whom live on tight, fixed incomes – Ovation’s commitment to serving this venerable segment of society is their number one priority.
To that end, Molasky – who was accompanied to Arioso’s Grand Opening with numerous local dignitaries, such as Governor Steve Sisolak and Clark County Commissioner Justin Jones – said that Ovation’s high-quality apartment complexes are not only lower-priced for qualified seniors, but also offer a number of amenities, such as recreational and resident service components.
“The need for affordable housing and supportive elderly housing in the Las Vegas Valley is well-documented,” Molasky said. “Southern Nevada already has a desperate shortfall now, and with a growing senior population, it is estimated that 85,000 additional affordable housing units will be needed in the next 10 years to meet the demand.”
Governor Sisolak stated at the event that one of the biggest problems facing residents of Nevada is rental options they can afford, especially as rents have been skyrocketing following the end of the COVID-19 pandemic.
“I’m proud of the work being done across all levels of government and with community partners, like Ovation, to address the affordable housing crisis in Nevada,” Sisolak said. “With my $500 million ‘Home Means Nevada’ investment, we will be working with partners across the state to build more affordable housing, get Nevadans into homes and keep them in their homes, as well as create good-paying jobs.”
The Energy Star-rated Arioso represents the 13th affordable senior housing community built and managed by Ovation, and includes one and two-bedroom apartments, and offers a recreation/wellness center, swimming pool and Jacuzzi, social gathering spaces and other amenities for residents.
