"Cyndy has been able to completely restore one of the most important historic landmarks in our city and create a place where seniors can age in place, in many cases surrounded by memories of their younger days."
The Cony flatiron building, built in 1926, is still owned by the city but was turned over for Taylor to redevelop into housing, on a 49-year lease, for $1 a year.
City officials struggled for years to find a developer willing find a new use for the distinctively shaped building overlooking the Cony roundabout. During that time, the city spent about $75,000 a year to heat and maintain the vacant former school.
"What a gem. Cyndy worked her magic one more time," City Manager William Bridgeo said.

Cyndy has come through 100 percent on the representations she made when she put her proposal in to redevelop it. She's the best I've seen."

Cynthia Milliken Taylor, President of Housing Initiatives of New England, the developer of Bessey Commons, was once a student at Bessey, as was her father before her. She probably never imagined, as she sat in class taking notes, that one day she would work with town officials to reinvent that same building as a much-needed residential complex that will benefit seniors and families in the community.
"Watching the transformation of my childhood schoolhouse was remarkable! says Cynthia. "It's very rare to be able to see your dream literally take shape, day by day. For that I feel privileged. And," she continues, "it really does feel good to give something lasting back to Scarborough.

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.

"Cyndy has been able to completely restore one of the most important historic landmarks in our city and create a place where seniors can age in place, in many cases surrounded by memories of their younger days."
The old Cony flatiron building, built in 1926, is still owned by the city but was turned over for Taylor to redevelop into housing, on a 49-year lease, for $1 a year.
City officials struggled for years to find a developer willing to take on finding a new use for the old, distinctively shaped building overlooking the Cony roundabout. During that time, the city spent about $75,000 a year to heat and maintain the vacant former school, expenses it won't have with the building in Taylor's hands.
"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 said some alumni who've toured the former school were so moved to see how it was refurbished and preserved that they cried.
...
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!
