WNCT Staff - KINSTON, N.C. (WNCT) --- A ribbon cutting was held in Kinston Thursday for a new affordable senior housing complex.
The apartments at Greenbriar Landing are located on 1000 Doctors Drive and are available to people 55 and over.
"A lot of times seniors are scared to go to that next level," said Frankie Pendergraph, owner of Greenbriar Landing and Pendergraph management. "This is independent living."
The apartments are located behind a neighborhood that sees flooding.
Residents of that neighborhood said they're concerned the complex is going to increase their flooding risk.
