M. Fine on Spring was known for years for its Halloween-time “Industrial Nightmare” haunted house, but in December 2017 it became a modern affordable housing community for seniors. The development offers a mix of one- and two-bedroom apartments exclusive to seniors age 55 and older.
The building blends new construction with preservation of the historic section, which was built in the 1930’s by clothing manufacturer M. Fine & Sons. There are 51 apartments; some are handicap accessible and all are equipped with energy efficient appliances and mechanical units. Amenities include an on-site fitness center, theater, community rooms, and an outdoor roof terrace.
Located at 835 Spring Street in Jeffersonville, it is on the edge of the new downtown arts and cultural district which will offer green space, interactive life-size games, shaded seating areas, performance space, two museums, and much more.
