Linden Place Apartments

Darland completed a renovation and addition on the more than 90-year-old Gunn School in Council Bluffs. Now Linden Place, a Seldin Company affordable senior housing community, the 42,265-square-foot complex features 36 units. Sixteen of the apartments are located in the renovated school, while the remaining 20 units are part of a new, two-story addition built on what was once the school's basketball courts and playground. The new apartments combine the building's historic charm with modern finishes. 

Originally built in 1880 and then rebuilt on the same site in 1924, Gunn School was slated to be torn down before Seldin showed interest in rehabbing the building. The project was made possible through a series community and economic development grants.
