From the window and balconies of the apartments in Findlay Senior Tower Apartments,
residents have sweeping views of the streets of the city. And Fairstead is making sure that the
seniors who call the eight-story building home never have to envision being anywhere else.
Upon acquiring Findlay, Fairstead extended the Section-8 status of the property then
committed $18M an all-over renovation plan that included key in-unit and common-area
enhancements — including sustainability upgrades such as a new water heater, pipe
insulation, low-flow fixtures, LED lighting and HVACs — and exterior reappointments.
The company’s commitment to its residents extends beyond meeting their basic needs.
Fairstead seeks to stabilize lives on the way to helping to maximize them. That manifests
here with a focus on a host of social services, facilitating access to health and wellness
education, financial counseling, food security and in-home care arrangements.
Fairstead has also taken over property management duties at Findlay, an important step
toward achieving one of the company’s primary aims: to positively impact individual residents
and their community whenever and wherever possible. This lofty goal includes establishing
and maintaining a higher-than-expected standard of property upkeep, as well as new
paradigms for operating transparency and resident communication.
Beyond this, Fairstead’s in-house social services team aims to establish regular communal
events and life-assistance programming tailored to residents’ wants and needs. More often
than not these events and services involve areas that are closely connected to personal
wellbeing, including education, aging in place, food insecurity, and access to relevant local,
state, national government assistance programs.
