"What a gem. Cyndy worked her magic one more time," City Manager William Bridgeo said of the building, which is surrounded by landscaped grounds that include a sitting area with granite benches and a "edible patio" featuring gardens full of a wide variety of vegetables in raised wooden platforms, to make it easier for residents to tend to them.

Taylor is confident the rest of the apartments will fill up - hopefully, she said, by next month.
She said the first week they started taking applications, 180 people expressed interest. She said a catch has been finding people who want to live there who also fit the income restrictions.

Taylor credits the existing thick brick walls, plus newly installed glass, for keeping it peaceful inside.
Taylor, who, during a recent tour, fussed over details, put away cans of paint, dusted, peeled labels left on appliances, and cleaned up areas as she went, like a concerned homeowner preparing her home for a party, is pleased with how the place turned out.
"It's like a boutique hotel," she said, looking down the wide hallways that start at the tip of the triangular building and flow back along both sides. "I'm very happy with it.

Taylor agreed to keep it, even though, with no apartments able to be located inside the space occupied by the auditorium, it meant less income-producing space.
She anticipates the space will be used to host dance recitals, plays by children, chorus performances and low-key musical acts.

Taylor said the curtain is due to arrive this week.

Taylor said it is gratifying to bring back a historic structure such as the former high school, noting she could never afford to do a project from the ground up with as many architectural details as are preserved in the flatiron building.
"When you walk in, you may not notice every detail," she said, "but you feel it."

Cindy is a class act! The building looks wonderful!


Mast Landing Senior Housing Receives Funding Green Light

www.nhhfa.org [cached]

Cynthia Taylor, President of Housing Initiatives of New England Corporation, said the project's proximity to shopping, two independent retirement communities, and medical facilities (including a hospital) would make it a great option for aging seniors who are looking for services. It would allow people who need services to stay within their neighborhood or it could attract seniors from other parts of Dover and Durham.

"People need additional services and need a lifestyle change if they no longer want to maintain a single family home," she said.
Mast Landing received a combination of tax-exempt bonds and Low Income Housing Tax Credits, which are both federal funding sources, from New Hampshire Housing. Tax credits have a track record of providing developers with the public-private partnerships and investments they need to build new rental housing, which is in high demand and short supply.
Taylor noted that these types of affordable housing deals can be difficult to put together.
"We're fortunate to have the low income housing tax credit funding to provide this type of housing," she said.
