Albany - A new apartment complex for senior citizens opens in Albany. Arcadia Commons,on 4th Avenue, has 28 units. Its available to people 62-years old and older, who meet certain income restrictions.

The city donated the land, and the complex was built with a $2.2-million loan from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development.

The complex is already full.

"The units went fast," said Dan McCarthy, Arcadia Commons, Incorporated. "They are in a great location where seniors can enjoy living."

A non-profit organization was created to develop and run the property. The site was chosen because of its close proximity to Phoebe Putney and other medical offices, which many the elderly residents uses often.
