ELKHART, Ind. (AP) — A former Elkhart musical instrument factory that was vacant for decades will soon reopen as a low-income seniors’ home.

The Elkhart Truth reports that the former Conn-Selmer factory could see residents moving in within days.

The newly redone building will offer 55 one or two bedroom apartments, as well as community and fitness centers.

Commonwealth Management has been refurbishing the building for at least a year.

The apartments will rent for between $300 and $650 a month. Residents cannot have a yearly income greater than $24,800.

The project was supported by nearly $840,000 in rental housing tax credits from the state.

The building was originally a car dealership from 1910 to 1930. Conn-Selmer later took it over and manufactured clarinets.
