The waitlist for underage applicants (55-61) is closed as of August 2, 2018, due to the overwhelming demand. On January 30, 2020, we are opening the waitlist at LaBelle Towers Co-op for underage applicants (55-61). The waitlist is ordered by date and time of the initial application.
Labelle is a towering oasis in downtown Highland Park located in the midst of a resurgence going on with the construction of a new fire department and redevelopment of the area with new business opening up.
It was completed in 1973 and this 10 story high rise has 212 units which are broken down into bedrooms and studios apartments. Each floor has their own laundry facility. Age qualification is 55 plus but HUD only allows 10% of the total number of apartments (22) to be rented to the 55 to 61 age range. There is usually a waiting list for that segment.
Labelle is nationally recognized as A Community of Quality by the National Affordable Housing Management Association. There are certain criteria that Labelle had to meet to be recognized by this national award.
LaBelle Towers Co-op Apartments does not allow smoking in any common areas, and within 25 feet of the building.
The co-op was set up to be democratically run by the members that live there. This means that there are elections held every year for officers, floor reps, financial issues. Labelle and all of the buildings managed by CSI Support and Development Services are run the same way.
The members enjoy floor parties, holiday parties, bingo, movie nights. There are shopping and casino trips. They sometimes host other of our buildings or travel to them to play cards. There is a van to transport them to other functions.
We are 500 feet from Woodward Avenue and Manchester. Within walking distances there are banks, strip malls, grocery stores and a police mini station. Our members volunteer to sit at the front desk to ask visitors, vendors and medical personnel to sign into the building. Also from 7p.m. to 7a.m. there is a paid security force. There is gated parking in the rear of the building.
Rent is based on a percentage of the household's income. There are no market rate units. If you'd like to inquire about seeing an apartment, please feel free to stop in or call our leasing specialist at 313-731-7073.
