August 15, 2017 - Las Vegas, Nevada: Accessible Space, Inc. (ASI) is pleased to announce that Patriot Place Apartments, an accessible, affordable supportive housing community with a priority preference for qualifying U.S. Veterans opened its doors after 14 months of construction on July 28, 2017. Located at 4245 South Pecos Road in Las Vegas, Patriot Place Apartments has 41, one-bedroom and 9, two-bedroom apartments which respectively provide 730 sq. ft. and 960 sq. ft. of living space.
Patriot Place Apartments provides rental assistance/subsidy which will ensure that resident paid rents are truly affordable, thanks to Project Based Vouchers provided by the Southern Nevada Regional Housing Authority (SNVRHA).

Services will be available from a variety of providers, including Nevada Partners, ASI’s Nevada Community Enrichment Program (NCEP), and the Veterans Administration (VA). ASI will also provide an on-site Service Coordinator along with on-site management and maintenance personnel.
Patriot Place Apartments offers a large, multipurpose community room with a warming kitchen, a hobby/activity room, computer lab, a library, an exercise room, and therapeutic spa rooms with walk-in tubs for resident use. A large outdoor courtyard and patio with a pergola and ample shaded seating, as well as an outdoor BBQ grill provide additional exterior common areas for resident use.
