Veranda at Whitted School, located at 200 East Umstead Street, is one of the most significant landmarks in the Southside area, in addition to being a unique historic landmark. The former school together with an architecturally compatible addition will provide 79 units of affordable senior housing for those 62 and over and a pre-kindergarten facility containing 8 classrooms. The Whitted School is historic both because of its circa 1922 architecture, but also because it was the City’s first high school built to educate African Americans.
This project is being developed by the Integral Group from Atlanta and will include funding from The Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), the City of Durham, Durham County, Durham Public Schools and through the sale of Low Income Housing Tax Credits and Historic Tax Credits for a total cost of approximately $23 million dollars.
Veranda will offer 20 of the units (26%) to serve households with incomes at or below 30% of the area median income (AMI) and 59 units to serve households with incomes between 31% and 60% AMI.
Completion of the project is expected in March 2017 and leasing has already begun. The pre-kindergarten will be operational by August, 2017.
