The Former Cross Keys YMCA property has been transformed into 36 units of quality, affordable rental housing for families. Funding was awarded in June 2010 and the property was dedicated in January of 2012.

The apartments feature private balconies, all kitchen appliances including microwaves and dishwashers, spacious closets, and individually controlled thermostats. There are 36 gracious apartments in total with 12 one-bedroom units, 16 two-bedroom units, and 8 three-bedroom units. A furnished Community Room and outdoor courtyard serves all residents.

Parkside is the essence of urban infill. This contemporary building makes an architectural statement and distinguishes itself as the first new multifamily residential development to occur in the Gardenside neighborhood in decades. The careful selection of materials, design, color, and structure combine to form a welcoming residential community. In addition to the well-planned apartments, with an emphasis on energy efficiency and sleek contemporary design, the generous outdoor spaces include balconies on each unit and a second floor patio area for residents and their guests. The courtyard space interjects green space within the building, creating an urbane and urban oasis in the midst of a busy neighborhood. Food markets, restaurants, pharmacies, and other necessities of daily living are just steps away.

The Parkside Apartments offer convenient, comfortable, and affordable living through financing from the Kentucky Housing Corporation as well as Citizens Union Bank, Community Affordable Housing Equity Corporation and LFUCG Division of Community Development. Income restrictions apply for all apartments.
