Senior apartments in Durham close for renovations

— Durham Housing Authority says one of its long-standing homes for senior citizens will remain open and residents will remain on site, relocated to different apartments during renovations.

Nearly 200 seniors, 62 years and older, will be moved within from the JJ Henderson Housing Center this month while construction takes place.

The building, at 807 S. Duke Street, consists of 177 units.

The renovation work will include a new roof, interior unit renovations and system upgrades.

The $31.2 million project will take 20 months to complete. It's one of six sites in DHA's rehabilitation plans.
