The two-story, 23-unit project, located on County-owned land at 8915 SW 40th St., is expected to open in late May and will include one-bedroom and two-bedroom rental units and studios equipped with LED lights, porcelain tile, patio/balcony and washer/dryer in each unit. The project also will include an elevator and security cameras and will be served by a bus stop in order to provide easy access to public transportation.
“This beautiful project will provide much-needed affordable housing for elderly residents in my community while allowing them to remain independent by providing easy access to public transportation for shopping, doctor’s appointments, or wherever they have to go,” Commissioner Souto said.
The project also includes two units for residents with mobility impairments and one for residents with hearing and/or visual impairments, in compliance with Uniform Federal Accessibility Standards (UFAS).
The $5 million project is partly funded with General Obligation Bonds and federal funds.
