New Low-Income Complex Boasts Luxury

An apartment community with a built-in movie theater, free WI-fi and that's just for starters.

Inwood Crossings sits along K-96 between Woodlawn and
Rock Road
. It's not an area where you'd normally find low-income housing, but this is a whole new take on the concept.

From a movie theater, fitness room and computer lab to a swimming pool and BBQ area, the concept is when those less fortunate live in a nice place their lives will improve.

Bruce and Brenda Bynum moved in with their four grandchildren and are celebrating their first Christmas here.
"I believe it helps inspire you. When you have something nice you want to take care of it," said Bruce.

The Bynum's took center stage for the development's official grand opening Thursday morning. Getting to this point took three years, struggling through neighbors concerns about the place then picking up financial backing from the City of Wichita.

Council Member Lavonta Williams helped push it through,"It's not just affordable it's an attractive housing option for families and individuals who are seeking a safe, clean and permanent place to call home."

Calling this place home costs between $585 and $895 a month, depending on resident's income. The complex is only for households with 60% or less of the area's median income.

For the Bynums, the true luxury of the place is not only is it spacious but also very safe. There's even a police substation on site.

"It's good to have a good neighborhood and a good school for the kids to go to. We really enjoy it and the kids really love it here," said Brenda.

Those looking for a place to live can stop by or call. There are still units available.
